4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.2GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the Alienware Alpha[plb_3368857_price] which is cheaper.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (3.7GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB and higher rated); or the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3807262_price] (1TB and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly average hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other latest few processor core computers.

Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3807262_price] (1TB and cheaper); or the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB and higher rated).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other recently released few processor core computers.

We compared this PC to all the other 4GB memory personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL 3250[plb_3343848_price] is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (8GB and higher rated).
