11 Reasons For

Just Released Five Months Ago

The 7040 was only relased by DELL five months ago. Newer personal computers like this one are likely to use better technology.

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor cores computers that have been around for the last year range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speeds supported by processor is 1,700MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly fast memory clock speeds supported by processor compared to most of the other latest medium processor cores computers.

SSD Storage Media

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most latest medium processor cores computers. Most newly released medium processor cores 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.

This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to the 7040.

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