The worst storage speed across similar types of computer is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This PC has a L3 processor cache level, which is typical of many computers of a comparable type and age to it.
10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology
This personal computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
+6 More reasons for
Two PCI Express X16 Slots
Most of the other computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020 only have one PCI Express x16 slot, however the OptiPlex 9020 has two PCI Express x16 slots.

This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year.
Computers of this type and age have depths of between 31mm and 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is quite shallow (only 312 millimeters) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released one year ago.
The narrowest medium processor core desktop computer that has been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 is 33mm wide and the widest is 510mm. At only 93 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other computers of this age and type.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago is 840GB. The OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly small total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 9020.
Only One 3.5" Bay
The DELL OptiPlex 9020 is a one 3.5" bay computer.
Only One Storage Drive
Most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago have between one and five storage drives, including the OptiPlex 9020 which has one storage drive.
