14 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Desktop Computer Reviews
PCs produced by DELL generally have good ratings.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This computer is one of the latest PCs to be released.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers that came out around the same time as it.
4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version
This computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been around for around the same time as it.
Quite Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Base Frequency
Across all the few processor core computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040 the on-board graphics adapter base frequencies range from 100MHz to 690MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter base frequency of 350 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a very fast on-board graphics adapter base frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.
Very Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has one of the biggest max internal memory supported processors (64 gigabytes) amongst few processor core computers of this age. The average max internal memory supported processor of recently released few processor core computers is 42GB.
+9 More reasons for
Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most personal computers that came out in the last 12 months have between one and five USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the OptiPlex 3040 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed
The slowest processor clock speed of few processor core computers that were launched in the last 12 months is 1GHz and the fastest is 3.7GHz. The OptiPlex 3040 has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other new similar spec desktop computers.
Other 3.7GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the HP 410-135na[plb_3821035_price], or the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3426584_price].
SSD Storage Medium
The OptiPlex 3040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most few processor core computers that are a comparable age to it. Most few processor core computers 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.
This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across comparable types of desktop computer.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many few processor core computers that came out in the last year.
Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate
The average system bus data transfer rate of few processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months is 6.5GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s. With a system bus data transfer rate of 8 Gigatransfers per second, the OptiPlex 3040 has a quite high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other newly released few processor core computers.
1.4 HDMI Version
This desktop computer has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is typical of many recently released few processor core computers.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many few processor core computers that came out in the last year.
New few processor core computers have widths of between 34mm and 440mm, and the average width is 160mm. The DELL OptiPlex 3040 is one of the narrower new few processor core computers (only 92.6 millimeters) amongst personal computers of this age.
2 Reasons Against
Recent Price Increase of £73.95
In the last month the price of the OptiPlex 3040 has increased by £73.95.
Very Small Total Storage Capacity
At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other few processor core computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3040. The smallest total storage capacity of recently released similar spec desktop computers is 16GB, the biggest is 1TB, and the average total storage capacity is 580GB.
If this desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the 400 G2 DM[pl_3862601_price] (500GB), or the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3740588_price] (500GB) both from HP or the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3426584_price] (500GB) which is also cheaper.
1 Other reason to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040
Average Internal Memory
The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly typical internal memory (4 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.
There are a number of other 4GB memory PCs currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the HP 280[plb_3167136_price].
Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the Ideacentre 300[pl_3250699_price] (8GB), or the M700 Tiny[pl_3257196_price] (8GB) both from Lenovo or the Alienware Steam Machine[plb_3366091_price] (8GB).
