The 7040m was only relased by DELL two months ago.
DELL is one of the better rated computer brands according to average reviews from users and experts, and DELL also has good reviews for its medium processor core computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on latest comparable spec PCs.
SSD Storage Medium
The DELL 7040m has a faster storage speed than most comparable spec computers that have been around for around the same time as it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec PCs that are a similar age 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 across all PCs that are a comparable age to the 7040m.
The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of PC is HDD.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that have been available for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This PC has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many recently released PCs.
+4 More reasons for
At only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040m is quite shallow compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that were released in the last year. The shallowest latest medium processor core computer is 34mm deep and the deepest is 600mm.
When compared to other latest similar spec personal computers that we have assessed, the weight of the DELL 7040m of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest. Recently released medium processor core computers have weights of between 38g and 23kg.
When compared to other desktop computers that came out in the last 12 months that we have checked the width of, the DELL 7040m's width of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest. The average width of medium processor core computers that were released around the same time as the 7040m is 200mm, and the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm.
5 Reasons Against
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040m has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers. Across all the medium processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040m the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.5TB.
If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to look at the 400 G3 SFF (£369.99) (256GB), the 600 G2 (£1,208.77) (256GB), or the 400 G3 (£788.40) (256GB) all from HP.
Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed
The DELL 7040m has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 7040m. Latest medium processor core computers have processor clock speeds of between 1.3GHz and 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.
If you would prefer a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the 550-267ng (£638.38) (2.7GHz), the Elite Slice (£1,539.95) (2.8GHz), or the 600 G2 SFF (£529.97) (3.2GHz) all from HP.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
Only One DisplayPort
Most new medium processor core computers have between one and three DisplayPorts, including the DELL 7040m which has one DisplayPort.
+2 More reasons against
Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency
At only 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL 7040m has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other recently released similar spec personal computers. The average maximum turbo frequency of medium processor core computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040m is 3.6GHz.
1 Other reason to consider the DELL 7040m
Average Internal Memory
The DELL 7040m has a fairly standard internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other new medium processor core computers.
