Dell OptiPlex 9020 AIO


For a basic work desktop, the Dell OptiPlex 9020 All-in-One is a solid choice, handling day-to-day computing tasks with ease and bringing Windows 8 and touch to the workplace.

All-in-One design with 23-inch touch display. Fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor gets the job done and adds extra graphics oomph

500GB hard drive may be a little small. Lacks a dedicated GPU for real graphics heavy lifting

There's a new face in the office, and while does everything the last guy did, it doesn't look the same and it does things a little different. I'm talking, of course, about the all-in-one PC, which is rapidly becoming the new norm for office PCs,...

Dell OptiPlex 9020


Do you need a reliable computer for your business? See how the Dell OptiPlex rates in our review.

It has a quad-core processor. With all the USB ports, internal and external bays, and expansion slots, you can easily upgrade and expand the components

The hard drive only has 320GB of storage

With an Intel i7 3.5GHz quad-core processor and 8 gigabytes of RAM, the Dell OptiPlex business computer has the power to run your programs efficiently even while multitasking with multiple programs open at once.

Great Virtualization Box


This server is definitely a powerhouse with the current generation of Intel processors. Lots of memory slots, it helps when buying lots of memory for virtualization. Only limitation is the number of slots for adapters, but that is an acceptable...

The most quiet server ever


Pro: Quiet, very quiet. Con: Only 1U, small form factor drives. Does anyone know if R710 is just as quiet.

This is a Fantastic Server - Very Fast!


Sometimes Dell gets it right on all counts. This server is quiet, efficient, and fast! To compare I migrated a MAS200 ERP system to this server from another Dell server (Poweredge 2950 2GHZ, Quad Xeon 32-bit) This new server is 64-bit 2008 STD server...

Dell OptiPlex 780 Mini Tower


Except for a minor dent at the bottom rear, it's in very good condition and is very clean inside the case. The included Micro keyboard and mouse are cheap quality, so I switched to a Logitech set. Setup and activation was easy and went without a...

Good computer but not for novice.


No documentation supplied with computer other than two pages explaining Windows 7 activation. Went to Dell web support and entered service number. Downloaded user manual for computer along with original specification, then had Dell web support scan...

Consumer review by:



Not a huge hard drive, but a good deal. Key board, mouse, and speakers are real cheaply made. But monitor was decent, computer was good. Does what I need, and really can not beat the price.
