Chart Edit

Shallow

When compared to other comparable spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago that we have assessed, the DELL 5040's depth of only 92.6 millimeters is one of the shallowest. Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 5040 the depths range from 31mm to 590mm, and the average depth is 350mm.

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs of this age and spec is 1.8TB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 8.2TB. At only 2 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 5040.

Only One Graphics Adapter DisplayPort

The DELL 5040 is a one graphics adapter DisplayPort personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 5040 have between one and three graphics adapter DisplayPorts.

Chart Edit

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and type to 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.

We compared all the other HDD computers to this PC and we think cheaper personal computers such as the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price], and the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Mini Tower[plb_2966408_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the OptiPlex 7020 MT[pl_2788976_price] (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3020 SFF[pl_2867167_price] (SSD) both from DELL which is also cheaper.

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

Medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than a year ago have hard drive capacity of between 1GB and 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity personal computers to this desktop computer and we think cheaper personal computers such as the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881921_price], and the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2837690_price] both from DELL is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_3158291_price] (1TB and higher rated).

Only One 3.5" Bay

The DELL 5040 is a one 3.5" bay desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The DELL 5040 has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,600 megahertz) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The slowest memory clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 5040 is 1,000MHz, the fastest is 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,800MHz.

Chart Edit

5 Other reasons to consider the DELL 5040

Released Over a Year Ago

This personal computer has been on the market for over a year.

Price Increase of £4.01

The 5040 has increased in price by £4.01 in the last 61 days.

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the DELL 5040 has a relatively typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 5040.

We compared all the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed personal computers to this personal computer and we think cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo ThinkCentre M73 Mini Tower[plb_2966408_price] is also worth considering.

If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Veriton M6640G[pl_3133375_price] (3.4GHz), or the Aspire X3-710[pl_3192159_price] (3.4GHz) both from Acer or the HP 800 G2[plb_3255262_price] (3.4GHz).

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of a similar spec and age to the 5040.

If you want a desktop computer with a bigger internal memory then you might also want to look at the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3121374_price] (10GB) which is also cheaper.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a relatively typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the 5040.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the OptiPlex 9020[pl_2881921_price], or the OptiPlex 7020[pl_2837690_price] both from DELL.

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73[plb_3158291_price] (1TB and higher rated).
