Dell Optiplex 9020 SFF It's a pretty good machine.

I thought I ordered the Desktop Tower format, but when I received it, it was the SSF one. But the picture shows the DT format... *visible confusion*

CPU Intel Core i5-4590 Clock Speed : 3.30 GHz

Originally the tech specs on the site where I bought it said "Core i5-4570" but what a surprise I got when I read "Core i5-4590" instead.

Webcam Bordeaux Diffusions (i'm joking) Pretty good 720p webcam... Does his job for visioconferences and appointements. For €18, I'm satisfied.

Gateway DT71 Has more than 3 Years of use since I own it... (and that's a record, my previous PC has durated 1 year and 10 months before a beautiful dead motherboard)...

Usually, a PC lasts 2 years before it suddenly stops working... So this one is a bit of an exception to the rule. And that's fine ! TPM Chip version 1.2

Acer (BIOS) P01A2C0b (UEFI) This machine is UEFI capable ! Even if the BIOS date is 20 July 2011.
CPU Intel Core i5-2400 Clock Speed : 3.1 GHz - Non overclocked

Still working after 3 years of intensive use.

RAM Samsung (2) Generic OEM

RAM sticks

RAM amount installed : 4 GB (2x2 GB)

Originally 8GB. 2 of them have the Samsung Branding, one other have the Nanya Branding, and the last one have the Kingston Branding...

On March 3, 2022, 2 RAM slots on the 4 present in this machine stopped working. This machine has never been so close to the dump.

GPU Intel HD Graphics 2000 Integrated Graphics.

Other components

Wi-Fi Adapter Comfast CF-WU815N This sh*t that was provided with my current computer. It crashes every time, but for just a bit of internet, it's okay.
