8 Reasons For
DELL Has Good Reviews for Its Desktop Computers
DELL is one of the superior computer manufacturers according to average reviews from owners and experts, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.
Just Released Four Months Ago
This personal computer is one of the newest desktop computers to be released. As such it is likely to use more advanced technology than some of the older desktop computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to it.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many desktop computers that have been on the market for the last year.
DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type
This computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many recently released comparable spec computers.
The depths of personal computers that were released in the last 12 months range from 33mm to 600mm, and the average depth is 320mm. With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is one of the shallower medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the 7040 amongst personal computers of this age.
+3 More reasons for
The lightest medium processor core desktop computer that has been available for a similar time to the 7040 is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 16kg. With a weight of only 1.3 kilograms, the DELL 7040 is quite light compared to most of the other latest medium processor core personal computers.
The average width of medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 12 months is 250mm, and the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm. At only 36 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is quite narrow compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the 7040.
3 Reasons Against
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The average maximum internal memory of recently released medium processor core personal computers is 42GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 2GB to 260GB. The DELL 7040 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 16 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age.
Quite Small Processor Cache
At only 6 megabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for the last year. The smallest processor cache of recently released comparable spec computers is 2MB, the biggest is 10MB, and the average processor cache is 6.7MB.
Only Four Processor Threads
Most computers that came out in the last year have between four and seven processor threads, including the DELL 7040 which has four processor threads.
5 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040
Average Processor Clock Speed
The DELL 7040 has a pretty average processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last year.
Average Hard Drive Capacity
The DELL 7040 has a fairly standard hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the DELL 7040 has a relatively average total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 7040.
+3 Other reasons
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 new medium processor core personal computers.
HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is typical of many desktop computers that are a comparable age to 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.
