11 Reasons For

Good Brand

DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

The OptiPlex 9020 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other personal computers of this spec and age have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The OptiPlex 9020 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed across all medium processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year.

Across similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD PCs currently available including the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 which has better reviews.

Quite Big Internal Memory

Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB. The OptiPlex 9020 has one of the bigger internal memory (8 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory computers currently available including the DELL OptiPlex 7020 SFF which is cheaper.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many personal computers that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 which has six USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The depths of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. At only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 9020 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 9020.

Chart Edit

Light

Computers that have been available for more than a year have weights of between 38g and 100kg. When compared to other computers of this age and spec, the weight of the OptiPlex 9020 of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest.

Chart Edit

Narrow

When compared to other desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 that we have assessed the width of, the OptiPlex 9020's width of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The widths of medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago range from 33mm to 510mm.

Chart Edit

12 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year is 10GB/s, the fastest is 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. At only 25.6 gigabytes per second, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and spec to the OptiPlex 9020.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. Desktop computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 840GB.

If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Asus E410 (500GB and cheaper), or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF (500GB and cheaper).

Very Slow Processor Clock Speed

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz. At only 2 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other computers of a comparable age and type to the OptiPlex 9020.

There are a number of alternative 2GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer Aspire XC-703, or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 (2.2GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Great PC if you do not planing on upgrading. I am extremely disappointed...

Good, well built machine. Workstation ready
Easy to setup and maintain. Simple case that's easy to get into to work on
Have not had chance to use
Proprietary, you cannot upgrade the power supply meaning you cannot add ANYTHING extra to the tower except 2 more drives. It comes with a low wage power supply that you can only purchase from this com
None that I can find. Though an internal USB port would be nice
