5 Other reasons to consider the DELL 5040

Average Processor Clock Speed

The DELL 5040 has a pretty standard processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.

There are a number of alternative 3.2GHz processor clock speed computers currently available that you might want to look at including the Acer Veriton X2632G[plb_2854035_price] which is cheaper.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the 800 G1[pl_3702429_price] (3.3GHz and cheaper), or the 400 G3 MT[pl_3810816_price] (3.3GHz and cheaper) both from HP.

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a pretty typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year.

We compared all the other 500GB total storage capacity computers to this computer and we think the Acer Veriton X2632G[plb_2854035_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148219_price] (1TB), or the DELL T3420[plb_3242155_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

The DELL 5040 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other latest comparable spec PCs.

There are a number of other 500GB hard drive capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper computers such as the Acer Veriton X2632G[plb_2854035_price].

Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148219_price] (1TB and cheaper), or the DELL T3420[plb_3242155_price] (1TB and cheaper).

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other latest computers.

Alternative 4GB memory personal computers currently available which you might want to look at include the Acer Veriton X2632G[plb_2854035_price] which is cheaper.

PCs with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the HP 550-251na[plb_3740284_price] (8GB and cheaper), or the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (8GB and cheaper).

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as 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.

There are a number of alternative HDD computers currently available that you might want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3540739_price], or the 400 G3 MT[pl_3817115_price] both from HP.

If the storage speed of this desktop computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3242115_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040[pl_3357451_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.
