DELL Has Good PC Reviews

DELL has good average ratings for its medium processor cores computers as well as across its entire PC range.

Chart

SSD Storage Media

The DELL 7040 Micro has a faster storage speed than most PCs that are a similar age to it. This personal computer has an SSD storage media, whereas most medium processor cores computers that have been around for around the same time as it 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 computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all desktop computers of a similar age and type to the 7040 Micro.

An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed amongst comparable types of computer.
