2 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Computers

Personal computers built by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The DELL 7040 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec computers that have been on the market for a similar time to it. This desktop computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most personal computers that were released one year ago have a DDR2-SDRAM internal memory type.

A DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type is actually the best internal memory type across all personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the 7040.

A DDR2-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst similar types of personal computer.

1 Reason Against

Only HDD Storage Media

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many personal computers of this age and spec. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL Chromebox 3010[plb_3089939_price] (SSD), or the Apple ME253[plb_3040912_price] (Flash).
