SSD Storage Media

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most PCs that have been around for the last year. 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 media is in fact the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec PCs that were launched in the last 12 months.

The worst storage speed across comparable types of computer is HDD.

Other SSD personal computers currently available that you might want to look at include the 400 G3[pl_3756969_price], or the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3769917_price] both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2880176_price] which has better reviews.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The smallest internal memory of recently released PCs is 4GB and the biggest is 32GB. At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other latest medium processor cores computers.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 8GB memory desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the 550-267ng[pl_3826491_price], the 490 G3 MT[pl_3280931_price], or the 600 G2[pl_3751932_price] all from HP.

10 Reasons Against

Average User Reviews

The average user rating of this DELL desktop computer is 67% based on 25 user reviews.

Not Good in Terms of Size

Several people who reviewed it thought it was not heavy and bulky. Holly Lewis mentioned in her review on Amazon “Slightly too heavy to hold in one hand (kindle fire is a better size for that).”. Michael K. wrote “This is a heavier product than why I thought it would be” in his review. Two years ago Mike Persell wrote on Amazon “It is a little heavy” in his review of this PC.

One DELL 7040 reviewer who reviewed the product considered that it was not a good weight. Jason V. said in his DELL 7040 review “The ergonomics are different than your standard tablet, since the weight isn't evenly distributed”.

Small Storage Capacity

One person wrote in their reviews that the DELL 7040 did not have good storage. Steve Harrison gave the product a rating of 3 stars and he wrote “The 2GB of memory is enough for an Android device and the 32GB of storage is not at all bad”.

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the medium processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as the 7040 the total storage capacitys range from 120GB to 3TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other newly released medium processor cores computers.

There are a number of other 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the Acer Veriton X2640G[plb_3283964_price], the DELL 7040[plb_3074345_price], or the HP 400 G3[plb_3756969_price].

If this desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to look at the 600 G2[pl_3857163_price] (256GB), the 400 G3[pl_3857456_price] (256GB), or the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3864883_price] (256GB) all from HP which is also higher rated.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 2.5GHz processor clock speed computers and we think because of it's better review score, the 400 G2[pl_3768564_price], and the 800 G2[pl_3338319_price] both from HP or the DELL 7040m[plb_3821264_price] is also worth considering.

If you want a faster processor frequency then you might want to look at the 550-267ng[pl_3826491_price] (2.7GHz), the Elite Slice[pl_3857647_price] (2.8GHz), or the 600 G2 SFF[pl_3857019_price] (3.2GHz) all from HP which also has a higher rating.
