16 Reasons For

Only Released Three Months Ago

The 7040 was only relased by DELL three months ago. Newer personal computers like this one are likely to use more advanced technology.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor core PCs that were released in the last year range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,700MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040's memory clock speed supported by processor is one of the fastest amongst recently released medium processor core PCs.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The DELL 7040 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors (64 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. Across all the comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040 the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 1.6TB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 99GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The DELL 7040 has one of the faster max memory bandwidth supported processor (34.1 gigabytes per second) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. The slowest max memory bandwidth supported processor of medium processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months is 10GB/s, the fastest is 77GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 34GB/s.

Chart Edit

DELL Has Good Computer Reviews

On average DELL medium processor core PCs have good reviews compared to other manufacturers as do all desktop computers built by DELL.

Chart

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core PCs that came out in 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.

Alternative SSD computers currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper computers such as the DELL 5040 ($726.52), or the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny.

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 medium processor core PCs that were launched in the last year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

The DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds (2,133 megahertz) amongst medium processor core PCs of this age. The slowest memory clock speed of desktop computers that were released in the last year is 1,000MHz and the fastest is 2,400MHz.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many recently released personal computers.

Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

Medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for the last year have system bus data transfer rates of between 5GT/s and 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 7.2GT/s. The DELL 7040 has a fairly high system bus data transfer rate (8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other new PCs.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 port desktop computer. Most of the other comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the 7040 have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Supports One Compatible Memory Card

The number of compatible memory card supported by the DELL 7040 is more than most medium processor core PCs that are a similar age to it. This personal computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by medium processor core PCs that have been on the market for the last year.

Chart Edit

1.4 HDMI Version

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

Chart Edit

Has One Memory Slot

The number of memory slots found on the DELL 7040 is more than most similar spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it. This desktop computer has a 4x DIMM memory slot, which is the most commonly found memory slot found on new comparable spec personal computers.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

At only 92.6 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other latest similar spec desktop computers. The shallowest medium processor core personal computer that is a comparable age to the 7040 is 33mm deep and the deepest is 600mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Quite Small Hard Drive Capacity

Across all the medium processor core PCs that were released in the last 12 months the hard drive capacity range from 120GB to 10TB. At only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a very small hard drive capacity compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core PCs.

If this computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the 800 G2 ($1,901.04) (500GB and cheaper), or the 800 G2 ($449.00) (500GB and cheaper) both from HP.

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

When compared to other similar spec computers that were released in the last year, the total storage capacity of the DELL 7040 of only 128 gigabytes is one of the smallest. Across all the medium processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the 7040 the total storage capacity range from 32GB to 3.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 740GB.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 128GB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the DELL 7040.

If this DELL PC total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the HP 400 G3 (256GB and higher rated); or the HP 400 G3 SFF (256GB and cheaper).

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This computer supports an IEEE 802.11a|IEEE 802.11ac|IEEE 802.11b|IEEE 802.11g|IEEE 802.11n WiFi standard, which is the most frequently supported WiFi standard on medium processor core PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Only Bronze EPEAT Compliance

The DELL 7040 has a better EPEAT compliance than most medium processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. This DELL PC has a Bronze EPEAT compliance, whereas most new computers have a Gold EPEAT compliance.

A Bronze EPEAT compliance is actually the worst EPEAT compliance across all latest personal computers.

A Gold EPEAT compliance is the best EPEAT compliance across comparable types of desktop computer.

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040

Average Processor Clock Speed

The DELL 7040 has a fairly average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that came out in the last year.

If this medium processor core personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z240 (3.3GHz and cheaper).

Read more Less Chart Edit

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers that were released in the last 12 months.

We compared this computer to all the other 8GB memory desktop computers and we think cheaper desktop computers such as the Alpha ($327.00), and the Alpha both from Alienware is also worth considering.
