Dell OptiPlex 9020 Small Form Factor Desktop PC (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Although this small form factor PC isn’t nearly as hulking as a tower computer, it holds deceptive power. A snappy Intel Core i7 processor and solid-state drive that launches apps in the blink of an eye make this computer a productivity-enhancing addition to your workstation. And its economical size leaves plenty of room on your desktop for accessories, such as a printer or scanner.
Smooth, Fluid Multitasking
Listen to your favorite music playlist while building a spreadsheet, or edit vacation photos while watching a movie in a separate window. Backed by 4GB of onboard memory, this computer’s Intel Core i7 processor divvies up simultaneously running tasks among its four independent cores to keep everything running smooth as you juggle programs. In other words, you can get more done at once without onscreen lag to slow you down.
Solid-State Drive: Speed and Reliability
The built-in solid-state drive (SSD) performs the same duties of a traditional hard-disk drive, but up to 100 times faster. Unlike hard-disk drives, SSDs don’t rely on moving parts to write, store, and retrieve data; instead, they use flash memory chips that can boot up your computer and launch apps in mere seconds. Without the moving parts, SSDs are also lighter, take up less space within your computer, and are less susceptible to damage and data loss from computer bumps.
DVD-RW Optical Drive
Backup and transfer your data with ease using a DVD-RW drive, which not only plays DVDs, but lets you create your own. After writing your music, movie, and media files to a rewritable DVD, you can view them on a TV, transfer them to another computer, or keep them in storage as an emergency backup. DVD-RW drives are compatible with the following discs: CD-R, CD-RW DVD-R, and DVD-RW.

Michael Dell has always been a little bit ahead of the pack. At the age of 16, he was running a personal stamp auction and newspaper subscription service, earning more money than his high school Economics teacher. As a freshman at the University of Texas, he was building and selling computers while his classmates were busy dissecting the latest Air Supply record. By 27, Dell had earned a ranking on the Fortune 500, the youngest CEO to do so.
Dell’s drive for innovation became the core that powered Dell Inc. His belief that “technology is about enabling human potential” helped cement the company as the cornerstone of the PC revolution, especially once the advent of the Internet kickstarted the brand’s enthusiastic embrace of online sales and customer service. Today, Dell remains a reliable name in PC desktops, laptops, and accessories for work or home, especially with the company’s unique customizable features.
