This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The average depth of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 320mm. The DELL 7040m is one of the shallower latest medium processor core personal computers (only 176 millimeters) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Light

The DELL 7040m is very light (only 1.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the 7040m. Recently released computers have weights of between 38g and 16kg.

Chart Edit

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm. When compared to other recently released desktop computers, the width of the DELL 7040m of only 36 millimeters is one of the narrowest.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the DELL 7040m has one of the slower processor clock speeds amongst computers of this age. Across all the comparable spec computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040m the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz.

Personal computers with a faster processor clock speed that might also be worth considering include the HP 400 G3 SFF (£582.00) (3.2GHz).

Very Small Hard Drive Capacity

Latest medium processor core personal computers have hard drive capacity of between 250GB and 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the DELL 7040m has a quite small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

The average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of latest medium processor core personal computers is 8.5GB. At only 1.7 gigabytes, the DELL 7040m has a fairly small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.

3 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040m

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040m has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040m.

Chart Edit

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the DELL 7040m has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on 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 PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the HP 400 G2 (£594.97) (SSD).
