Reasons For

1 Reason For
5x lighter Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a weight of 1.4kg. That's 6.6kg lighter than the Fujitsu D556 (8kg).
7 Reasons For
0.5GHz faster processor clock speed Edit
The Fujitsu D556 has a processor clock speed of 3.7GHz, whereas the DELL OptiPlex 3040 is only a 3.2GHz processor clock speed PC (0.5GHz slower). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

533MHz faster memory clock speed supported by processor Edit
The Fujitsu D556 is a 1,866MHz memory clock speed supported processor PC, whereas the DELL OptiPlex 3040 is only a 1,333MHz memory clock speed supported processor PC (533MHz slower).
Faster memory clock speed Edit
The Fujitsu D556 has a memory clock speed of 2,133MHz, but the DELL OptiPlex 3040 is only a 1,600MHz memory clock speed PC (533MHz slower). Read more

The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.

16GB bigger maximum internal memory Edit
The Fujitsu D556 has a maximum internal memory of 32GB, whereas the DELL OptiPlex 3040 is only a 16GB maximum internal memory PC (16GB smaller). Read more

The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

Bigger total storage capacity Edit
The Fujitsu D556 is a 500GB total storage capacity PC. That's 372GB bigger than the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (500GB). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

Faster on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency Edit
The Fujitsu D556 is a 1,050MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC. That's 100MHz faster than the DELL OptiPlex 3040 (1,050MHz).
Two more USB 2.0 ports Edit
The Fujitsu D556 is a four USB 2.0 port PC, whereas the DELL OptiPlex 3040 only has two USB 2.0 ports. Read more

Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.

Reasons Against

8 Reasons Against
16% slower processor clock speed Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a processor clock speed of 3.2GHz, however the Fujitsu D556 is a 3.7GHz processor clock speed PC (0.5GHz faster). Read more

The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.

A higher processor clock speed means that the computer can complete more calculations every second which means that applications will run faster.

533MHz slower memory clock speed supported by processor Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a memory clock speed supported by processor of 1,333MHz, however the Fujitsu D556 is a 1,866MHz memory clock speed supported processor PC (533MHz faster).
A lot slower memory clock speed Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a memory clock speed of 1,600MHz, whereas the Fujitsu D556 is a 2,133MHz memory clock speed PC (533MHz faster). Read more

The frequency at which the memory (e.g. RAM) runs.

Vastly smaller maximum internal memory Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a maximum internal memory of 16GB, however the Fujitsu D556 is a 32GB maximum internal memory PC (16GB bigger). Read more

The maximum internal memory which is available in the product.

Three times smaller total storage capacity Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 is a 128GB total storage capacity PC. That's 372GB smaller than the Fujitsu D556 (500GB). Read more

The total internal storage capacity is the space available for the computer to store documents, media and applications.

A bigger internal storage capacity means that you can store more applications, documents and media on the computer.

Slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 is a 950MHz on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency PC. That's 100MHz slower than the Fujitsu D556 (1,050MHz).
Two less USB 2.0 ports Edit
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has two USB 2.0 ports, however the Fujitsu D556 only has four USB 2.0 ports. Read more

Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
