14 Reasons Against

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The discrete graphics adapter memory of the OptiPlex 9020 of only 1 gigabyte is one of the smallest amongst computers of this spec and age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 is 1GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.8TB.

Chart Edit

Only One Graphics Adapter DisplayPort

Most PCs of this type and age have between one and three graphics adapter DisplayPorts, including the DELL OptiPlex 9020 which has one graphics adapter DisplayPort.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

Personal computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. The DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite slow max memory bandwidth supported processor (only 25.6 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 32 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 9020 the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 65GB.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

Other HDD personal computers currently available which you might also want to look at include cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu D556[plb_3119835_price], or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price].

If the storage speed of this PC is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the OptiPlex 9020 SFF[pl_2414879_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

At only 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020. Across all the computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the OptiPlex 9020 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB, and the average hard drive capacity is 930GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2837690_price].

If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the OptiPlex 7010[pl_2903853_price] (1TB), or the 270[pl_3068921_price] (1TB) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Computers of a similar spec and age to the OptiPlex 9020 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB. At only 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the OptiPlex 9020.

We compared this PC to all the other 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers and we think cheaper computers such as the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2556629_price], and the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2837690_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the OptiPlex 7010[pl_2903853_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the 270[pl_3068921_price] (1TB and cheaper) both from DELL or the HP ProDesk 400 G2.5 SFF[plb_2973425_price] (1TB and cheaper).

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
