DELL medium processor core computers have good ratings on average and across all PCs DELL is one of the superior brands.
Only Released Four Months Ago
DELL only released the 7040 four months ago. Newer personal computers like this one are likely to have better features.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as it.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most computers that are a comparable age to it. Most medium processor core computers that have been on the market for a similar time to 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 7040.
The worst storage speed across similar types of PC is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most frequently found internal memory type on personal computers that came out in the last year.
+5 More reasons for
The heights of medium processor core computers that came out in the last year range from 10mm to 530mm, and the average height is 300mm. The DELL 7040 is quite short (only 182 millimeters) compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core computers.
At only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040. The average depth of recently released comparable spec personal computers is 340mm, and the depths range from 34mm to 600mm.
The DELL 7040 is one of the lighter medium processor core computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040 (only 1.3 kilograms) amongst comparable spec computers of this age. Across all the latest medium processor core computers the weights range from 38g to 23kg.
With a width of only 36 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is one of the narrowest latest similar spec personal computers amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The widths of recently released medium processor core computers range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 200mm.
6 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of recently released comparable spec personal computers is 810GB, and the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB. With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest medium processor core computers.
PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth considering include the 400 G3 (£399.64) (500GB), or the 400 G3 MT (£429.98) (500GB) both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 3040m (£428.98) (500GB).
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The average processor clock speed of comparable spec desktop computers that were launched in the last 12 months is 3.1GHz. At only 2.5 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest comparable spec desktop computers.
If this personal computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to consider the 550-267ng (£636.61) (2.7GHz), the 550-254na (£479.95) (2.7GHz), or the 550-252na (£441.60) (2.7GHz) all from HP.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is the most frequently supported Ethernet LAN data rate on medium processor core computers that have been around for the last year.
Only One DisplayPort
The DELL 7040 is a one DisplayPort computer.
+3 More reasons against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the 7040. Desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040 have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 40GB.
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz. At only 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040.
1 Other reason to consider the DELL 7040
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a pretty typical internal memory compared to most of the other recently released similar spec PCs.
If you would prefer a computer with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the Precision T5810 (16GB), or the Precision T5810 (£1,454.98) (16GB) both from DELL or the HP 550-270na (£679.95) (12GB).
