This DELL desktop computer was released just seven months ago, so it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older PCs.

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor cores computers as well as across its entire personal computer range compared to other manufacturers.

SSD Storage Media

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most medium processor cores computers that were launched in the last 12 months. Most latest desktop computers have an HDD storage media. 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 actually the best storage speed across all latest PCs.

Across comparable types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
