The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.
Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed
The DELL 7040 has a fairly fast memory clock speed (2,133 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor cores personal computers that are a comparable age to the 7040. The average memory clock speed of newly released similar spec desktop computers is 1,900MHz.
+5 More reasons for
Eight Processor Threadss
The DELL 7040 has more processor threadss than most of the computers that came out around the same time as the 7040. Most of the recently released comparable spec desktop computers only have between four and seven processor threadss, however this computer has eight processor threadss.
Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the recently released medium processor cores personal computers the maximum internal memorys range from 32GB to 66GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 52GB.
1.4 HDMI Version
This personal computer has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is the most commonly found HDMI version on medium processor cores personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months.
With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL 7040 is quite light compared to most of the other computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040. The weights of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040 range from 350g to 15kg.
4 Reasons Against
Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

The average hard drive capacity of computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040 is 910GB.
Computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might also be worth looking at include the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price] (500GB).
Quite Small Total Storage Capacity
Across all the comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for the last year the total storage capacitys range from 120GB to 3TB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest similar spec computers.
Quite Slow Processor Frequency
With a processor frequency of only 2.8 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly slow processor frequency compared to most of the other recently released desktop computers. Across all the newly released medium processor cores personal computers the processor frequencys range from 1.6GHz to 4GHz.
Only Bronze EPEAT Compliance
The DELL 7040 has a Bronze EPEAT compliance which is better than the Gold EPEAT compliance found on most comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it.
A Bronze EPEAT compliance is in fact the worst EPEAT compliance amongst all desktop computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040.
The best EPEAT compliance amongst similar types of personal computer is Gold.
