9 Reasons For

DELL PCs Have Good Reviews

Medium processor core personal computers produced by DELL have good ratings on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good ratings across its entire range.

Only Released Four Months Ago

This computer was only released four months ago.

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 latest medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040m has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been around 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.

This computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all recently released medium processor core personal computers.

The worst storage speed amongst similar types of computer is HDD.

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on latest personal computers.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

At only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040m is fairly shallow compared to most of the other new comparable spec personal computers. The shallowest comparable spec desktop computer that was released in the last year is 33mm deep, the deepest is 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm.

Chart Edit

Light

When compared to other comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040m that we have assessed the weight of, the DELL 7040m's weight of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest. Latest similar spec personal computers have weights of between 38g and 16kg.

Chart Edit
