10 Reasons For

DELL PCs Have Good Reviews

On average DELL medium processor core personal computers have good ratings compared to other brands as do all PCs produced by DELL.

Only Released Three Months Ago

This desktop computer was released just three months ago. Newer PCs like this one are likely to use better technology.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the desktop computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3040m the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz. The OptiPlex 3040m has a fairly fast memory clock speed supported by processor (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other latest similar spec personal computers.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on similar spec PCs that were released in the last year.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The OptiPlex 3040m has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as 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 amongst all medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m.

Amongst similar types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
