17 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

We calculated the average ratings for all DELL PCs and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of desktop computers that are a similar age to the 7040 Micro range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 Micro's memory clock speed supported by processor is one of the fastest amongst medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 Micro.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

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

The 7040 Micro is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.

Chart Edit

Price Has Dropped by £85.00

The 7040 Micro has dropped in price by £85.00 in the last 46 days.

SSD Storage Medium

The 7040 Micro has a faster storage speed than most PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This DELL PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were launched 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 Micro.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD computers currently available including the 7040[pl_3072619_price], or the 7040[pl_3074345_price] both from DELL which is cheaper.

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of this type and age is 640MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The 7040 Micro has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,100 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040 Micro.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The 7040 Micro has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.

Alternative 128GB total storage capacity computers currently available that you might want to consider include the 7040[pl_3074345_price], or the 7040[pl_3072619_price] both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini[plb_3078512_price] which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the 800 G2[pl_3255262_price] (256GB and cheaper), or the 800 G2[pl_3242903_price] (500GB and cheaper) both from HP.
