13 Reasons For

Only Released Three Months Ago

This medium processor core personal computer has only been on the market for three months.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that have been around for the last year.

Chart Edit

Nine USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A Ports

Most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the 5040 only have between one and eight USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A ports, however the DELL 5040 has nine USB 3.1 (3.1 Gen 2) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

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

The DELL 5040 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port personal computer. Most of the other medium processor core PCs that came out in the last year have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

We checked 191 expert and user reviews for DELL PCs and found that on average DELL has good reviews. We also found that DELL has good reviews specifically for its medium processor core PCs.

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 5040 has a faster storage speed than most comparable spec computers that were released around the same time as it. This desktop computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to it have an HDD storage medium. 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 personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed across all medium processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the 5040.

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

We compared this PC to all the other SSD PCs and we think the HP ProDesk 400 G3 SFF which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Fairly Big Internal Memory

The average internal memory of computers that were launched in the last year is 7.8GB. At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core PCs.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 8GB memory personal computers currently available including cheaper PCs such as the OptiPlex 9020 ($505.00), or the Precision T1700 both from DELL.

If you are looking for a PC with a bigger internal memory then you might want to look at the DELL 3650 ($749.00) (16GB and cheaper).

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months.

Chart Edit

Two PCI Express X16 Slots

The DELL 5040 is a two PCI Express x16 slot computer. Most of the other medium processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the 5040 have between one and three PCI Express x16 slots.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 5040 is a six USB 3.0 port desktop computer.

Chart Edit

Two 2.5" Bays

The DELL 5040 is a two 2.5" bay computer. Most of the other PCs that were released in the last 12 months have between one and three 2.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Supports One Compatible Memory Card

The DELL 5040 has a greater number of compatible memory card than most new medium processor core PCs. This DELL desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most commonly supported compatible memory card supported by medium processor core PCs that have been available for the last year.

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the DELL 5040 is more than most computers that are a comparable age to it. This DELL PC has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on latest medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the 5040. Across all the medium processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the 5040 the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB.

If this DELL desktop computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP 400 G3 (256GB) which also has a higher rating.

Very Small Hard Drive Capacity

The DELL 5040 has one of the smaller hard drive capacity (only 500 gigabytes) amongst similar spec computers of this age. The average hard drive capacity of medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the 5040 is 910GB, and the hard drive capacity range from 120GB to 10TB.

Other 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available that you might also want to look at include the HP ProDesk 600 SFF, the DELL OptiPlex 9020 ($505.00), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre E73 ($623.22) which is cheaper.

If you are looking for a bigger hard drive capacity then you might want to look at the Acer Predator G3-710 ($870.98) (1TB and higher rated); or the Fujitsu P556 (1TB and cheaper).

Only One 3.5" Bay

The DELL 5040 is a one 3.5" bay computer. Most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 5040 have between one and three 3.5" bays.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of medium processor core PCs that came out in the last 12 months is 42GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. At only 16 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the 5040.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

Across all the comparable spec PCs that came out in the last year the memory clock speeds range from 1,000MHz to 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,900MHz. At only 1,600 megahertz, the DELL 5040 has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other newly released similar spec desktop computers.

Chart Edit

1 Other reason to consider the DELL 5040

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the DELL 5040 has a pretty standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that were launched in the last year.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed PCs currently available including the Extensa M2610, or the Veriton X2632G both from Acer or the DELL 5040 ($676.98) which is cheaper.

Computers with a faster processor clock speed that might be worth looking at include the 600 G1 TWR (3.3GHz), or the 800 G1 ($320.00) (3.3GHz) both from HP which is also cheaper.
