13 Reasons For

Just Released Three Months Ago

Being released just three months ago, this computer is likely to have more advanced features.

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The average memory clock speed supported by processor of comparable spec personal computers that were released in the last year is 1,700MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many new personal computers.

Chart Edit

Good Brand

Medium processor core PCs produced by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core PCs) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The slowest memory clock speed of latest computers is 1,000MHz, the fastest is 2,400MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 1,900MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a fairly fast memory clock speed compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is the most commonly found internal memory type on medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Quite High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The DELL 7040 has one of the higher system bus data transfer rates (8 Gigatransfers per second) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. The average system bus data transfer rate of medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as the 7040 is 7.2GT/s, and the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

The maximum internal memory of computers that came out in the last year range from 8.1GB to 790GB. With a maximum internal memory of 65,536 megabytes, the DELL 7040 has one of the bigger maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

Across all the medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040 the depths range from 33mm to 600mm. The DELL 7040 is one of the shallower desktop computers that were released around the same time as the 7040 (only 176 millimeters) amongst computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Light

Across all the similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the 7040 the weights range from 38g to 16kg. When compared to other medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040 that we have assessed the weight of, the DELL 7040's weight of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the personal computers that have been on the market for the last year the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 220mm. At only 36 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is very narrow compared to most of the other newly released personal computers.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Across all the new personal computers the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB. At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a very small total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040.

If this personal computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might also want to look at the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3864883_price] (256GB and cheaper), or the 400 G3 SFF[pl_3820588_price] (256GB and cheaper) both from HP.

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This desktop computer supports an IEEE 802.11a|IEEE 802.11ac|IEEE 802.11b|IEEE 802.11g|IEEE 802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most commonly supported WiFi standard on personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Only Bronze EPEAT Compliance

The DELL 7040 has a Bronze EPEAT compliance which is better than most medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it. Most latest similar spec computers have a Gold EPEAT compliance.

A Bronze EPEAT compliance is actually the worst EPEAT compliance across all comparable spec PCs that came out around the same time as the 7040.

Across similar types of desktop computer the best EPEAT compliance is Gold.

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a relatively typical internal memory compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core PCs.

Other 8GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper computers such as the DELL OptiPlex 9020[plb_2663205_price], or the Alienware Alpha[plb_2706467_price].

Computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the DELL 3650[plb_3450642_price] (16GB and cheaper).

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec desktop computers that came out 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.

We compared this computer to all the other HDD PCs and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the ProDesk 600 SFF[pl_2404729_price], and the 800 G1[pl_3702429_price] both from HP or the Alienware Steam Machine[plb_3359791_price] is also worth considering.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to look at the DELL 5040[plb_3140759_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[plb_3169875_price] (SSD and cheaper).
