Has One Memory Slot
The DELL 7040 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last year. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most frequently found memory slot found on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 7040.
+2 More reasons for
The average width of comparable spec PCs that have been around for the last year is 250mm. The DELL 7040 is fairly narrow (only 92.6 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Hard Drive Capacity
The DELL 7040 has a fairly small hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040. The average hard drive capacity of new similar spec desktop computers is 910GB.
If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (1TB).
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other computers that are a similar age to the 7040. PCs that have been around for a similar time to the 7040 have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
The DELL 7040 is a four processor thread PC.
4 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3.2 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
If you are looking for a faster processor clock speed then you might also want to consider the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (3.4GHz), or the HP 400 G3[plb_3857456_price] (3.4GHz).
Average Internal Memory
The DELL 7040 has a relatively average internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 7040.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 500 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly typical total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months.
If you would prefer a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to consider the DELL 7040[plb_3817108_price] (1TB).
+2 Other reasons
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for the last year. 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.
If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP 400 G2[plb_3768564_price] (SSD).
