10 Reasons For

Only Released Five Months Ago

This DELL desktop computer is one of the most recent desktop computers to be released.

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

Across all the computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz. The DELL OptiPlex 3040m has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (2,133 megahertz) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is typical of many medium processor cores computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

With a maximum internal memory supported by processor of 64 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m has one of the bigger maximum internal memory supported by processors amongst medium processor cores computers of this age. The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of latest medium processor cores computers is 110GB, and the maximum internal memory supported by processors range from 8GB to 1.6TB.

Chart Edit

DELL Computers Have Good Reviews

Medium processor cores computers manufactured by DELL have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all desktop computers (not just medium processor cores computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

SSD Storage Media

The OptiPlex 3040m has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most new medium processor cores computers. 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 actually the best storage speed across all recently released medium processor cores computers.

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

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most frequently found cabling technology on personal computers that came out in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

1.4 HDMI Version

This computer has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is typical of many PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Light

Across all the medium processor cores computers that have been on the market for the last year the weights range from 350g to 15kg, and the average weight is 6.3kg. At only 1.4 kilograms, the OptiPlex 3040m is quite light compared to most of the other new personal computers.

14 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 128 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other new desktop computers. Across all the medium processor cores computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m the total storage capacitys range from 120GB to 3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Processor Frequency

The slowest processor frequency of similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3040m is 1.6GHz and the fastest is 4GHz. With a processor frequency of only 2.5 gigahertz, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m has one of the slower processor frequencys amongst medium processor cores computers of this age.

If you would prefer a desktop computer with a faster processor frequency then you might also want to look at the Acer Veriton X2640G (£415.20) (2.7GHz).
