9 Reasons For

Only Released Five Months Ago

This computer was only released five months ago.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on latest medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

DELL PCs Have Good Reviews

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

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most PCs that have been on the market for the last year. 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 desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all computers that have been around for the last year.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed across similar types of desktop computer.

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This PC supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many new medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core PCs. The shallowest medium processor core personal computer that has been around for around the same time as the 7040 is 33mm deep, the deepest is 600mm, and the average depth is 330mm.

Chart Edit

Light

At only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL 7040 is very light compared to most of the other medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the 7040. Across all the similar spec PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040 the weights range from 38g to 16kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

With a width of only 36 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is one of the narrowest similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as the 7040 amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The widths of comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the 7040 range from 34mm to 7,100mm.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

At only 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other latest medium processor core PCs. The total storage capacity of recently released medium processor core PCs range from 32GB to 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB.

PCs with a bigger total storage capacity that might be worth considering include the 280 G2 ($541.55) (500GB), the 400 G3 ($611.19) (500GB), or the 600 G2 SFF ($668.20) (500GB) all from HP.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

The average processor clock speed of personal computers that came out in the last 12 months is 3.1GHz. The DELL 7040 has one of the slower processor clock speeds (only 2.5 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the 550-252na (2.7GHz), the 550-254na (2.7GHz), or the 550-251na (2.7GHz) all from HP.

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory

With a maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of only 1.7 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that were launched in the last year. Medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to the 7040 have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB.

Chart Edit

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This desktop computer supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to it.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The DELL 7040 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. Across all the similar spec computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040 the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the PCs that were released in the last year the maximum turbo frequencies range from 1.8GHz to 4.2GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.6GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.1 gigahertz, the DELL 7040 has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst medium processor core PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

1 Other reason to consider the DELL 7040
