The DELL 7040 has a relatively typical processor clock speed (3.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last year.

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been on the market for the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu W530[plb_2954179_price], or the Alienware Alpha[plb_3054588_price].

Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the 240 SFF[pl_3290411_price] (16GB), or the Z240 SFF[pl_3338320_price] (16GB) both from HP.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The DELL 7040 has a pretty standard total storage capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for the last year.

If you want a desktop computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the Lenovo P310[plb_3191099_price] (1TB) which is also cheaper.

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 PCs to this PC and we think the Fujitsu W530[plb_2954179_price], and the Alienware Alpha[plb_3054588_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this medium processor core desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[plb_3169875_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
