7 Reasons For

DELL Has Good PC Reviews

DELL is one of the better rated PC manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on similar spec computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on desktop computers that were released in the last year.

Chart Edit

1.4 HDMI Version

This computer has a 1.4 HDMI version, which is typical of many new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The average weight of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 6.4kg, and the weights range from 38g to 16kg. With a weight of only 1.4 kilograms, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m is one of the lighter recently released desktop computers amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3040m is quite shallow compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers. Across all the comparable spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m the depths range from 33mm to 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 36 millimeters, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m is one of the narrower latest computers amongst similar spec PCs of this age. The narrowest personal computer that was launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m is 34mm wide, the widest is 7,100mm, and the average width is 250mm.

Chart Edit

9 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The processor clock speeds of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the OptiPlex 3040m range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The DELL OptiPlex 3040m has a fairly slow processor clock speed (only 2.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 2.5GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the 600 G2, or the 400 G2 both from HP or the Lenovo M700 which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a PC with a faster processor clock speed then you might want to look at the HP 400 G3 SFF (3.2GHz) which is also cheaper.

Very Small Internal Memory

At only 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has a quite small internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m. The smallest internal memory of new comparable spec desktop computers is 2GB and the biggest is 32GB.

There are a number of alternative 4GB memory PCs currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the 400 G3 MT, or the 280 G2 both from HP.

Very Small Hard Drive Capacity

The hard drive capacity of latest desktop computers range from 250GB to 3TB. With a hard drive capacity of only 500 gigabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m has one of the smaller hard drive capacity amongst computers of this age.

We compared all the other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs to this personal computer and we think the HP 400 G3 MT which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the comparable spec computers that came out in the last year the maximum on-board graphics adapter memories range from 1GB to 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 8.5GB. With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.7 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One DisplayPort

The OptiPlex 3040m is a one DisplayPort desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of latest medium processor core personal computers range from 2GB to 260GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

At only 6 megabytes, the DELL OptiPlex 3040m has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers. Recently released desktop computers have processor caches of between 2MB and 10MB.

Chart Edit

Only Four Processor Threads

The OptiPlex 3040m is a four processor thread personal computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

The OptiPlex 3040m has a quite slow maximum turbo frequency (only 3.1 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3040m. The average maximum turbo frequency of latest similar spec PCs is 3.6GHz.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040m

Released Ten Months Ago

This computer has been on the market for ten months.

Price Has Increased by £1.00

In the last 47 days the OptiPlex 3040m has increased in price by £1.00.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040m has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040m.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 500GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the HP 400 G3 MT which is cheaper.

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been around for a similar time to it. 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.

We compared all the other HDD desktop computers to this computer and we think the Acer Aspire XC-705 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF (£430.00) (SSD) which is also cheaper.
