We calculated the average reviews for all DELL computers and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good reviews compared to other brands.
Just Released Three Months Ago
This DELL desktop computer was released just three months ago, so it is likely to have more advanced features than some of the older computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on recently released medium processor core personal computers.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on latest medium processor core personal computers.
Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
The DELL 5040 has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (4 gigahertz) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. Recently released medium processor core personal computers have maximum turbo frequencies of between 1.8GHz and 4.2GHz.
Two 2.5" Bays
The DELL 5040 is a two 2.5" bay personal computer. Most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers only have one 2.5" bay.
+6 More reasons for
Eight Processor Threads
The DELL 5040 is a eight processor thread personal computer.
Has One Memory Slot
The number of memory slots found on the DELL 5040 is more than most medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as it. This personal computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 5040.
DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type
The optical drive type of this computer is DVD Super Multi, which is typical of many recently released similar spec PCs.
GDDR Discrete Graphics Memory Type
This personal computer supports a GDDR3 discrete graphics memory type, which is typical of many new desktop computers.
Across all the new medium processor core personal computers the depths range from 33mm to 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm. At only 92.6 millimeters, the DELL 5040 is quite shallow compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a similar time to the 5040.
2 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The maximum internal memory of medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 5040 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 comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to the 5040.
Very Slow Memory Clock Speed
The average memory clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the 5040 is 2,000MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,600MHz to 2,400MHz. The DELL 5040 has a quite slow memory clock speed (only 1,600 megahertz) compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL 5040
Average Processor Clock Speed
With a processor clock speed of 3.4 gigahertz, the DELL 5040 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the DELL 5040 has a fairly typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the DELL 5040 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core personal computers.
+3 Other reasons
Average Internal Memory
At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 5040 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as 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.
