15 Reasons For

Good Brand

DELL is one of the better rated desktop computer brands according to average user and expert reviews, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of computers of this type and age range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. When compared to other personal computers that are a comparable age to the 5040 that we have checked, the DELL 5040's memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz is one of the fastest.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Nine USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A Ports

The DELL 5040 is a nine USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 5040 only have between one and eight USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This desktop computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on personal computers of a similar age and type to it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the DELL 5040 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

£30.02 Price Drop

In the last month the price of the 5040 has dropped by £30.02.

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 5040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers that were released around the same time as it. Most comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Amongst similar types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other SSD personal computers and we think the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price], the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3099420_price], and the DELL OptiPlex 7020 MT[plb_2788976_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Six USB 3.0 Ports

Most computers of this age and type have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the DELL 5040 which has six USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Supports One Compatible Memory Card

The DELL 5040 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as it. This desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by PCs that are a comparable age to the 5040.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The DELL 5040 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than a year. This PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 5040.

Chart Edit

Light

The weights of PCs of this age and spec range from 38g to 100kg, and the average weight is 7.5kg. With a weight of only 4.5 kilograms, the DELL 5040 is one of the lighter medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 5040 amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Shallow

The depths of personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 5040 range from 31mm to 590mm. When compared to other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the 5040, the DELL 5040's depth of only 92.6 millimeters is one of the shallowest.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

At only 1,050 megahertz, the DELL 5040 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other PCs of this spec and age. The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 5040 range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has one of the smaller total storage capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 5040 the total storage capacity range from 4GB to 3.6TB, and the average total storage capacity is 840GB.

We compared all the other 128GB total storage capacity computers to this PC and we think cheaper personal computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF[plb_2867167_price], and the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3099420_price] is also worth considering.

PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148220_price] (256GB), the HP 800 G2[plb_3255262_price] (256GB), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Mini Tower[plb_3166504_price] (500GB).

Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the 5040 the hard drive capacity range from 1GB to 3TB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Mini Tower[plb_2966408_price], or the Acer Veriton M2631[plb_2885009_price].
