Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports Quantitys

Most medium processor cores personal computers that came out in the last year have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys, including the DELL 7040 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports quantitys.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Media

The DELL 7040 has a faster storage speed than most recently released comparable spec personal computers. This computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most recently released similar spec PCs 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 in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor cores personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.
