DELL Has Good Personal Computer Reviews

Few processor core personal computers built by DELL have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just few processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good ratings across its entire range.

Chart

SSD Storage Medium

The OptiPlex 3040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. Most latest computers have an HDD storage medium. 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage speed across all comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3040.

Across comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

3 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040

Released Nine Months Ago

This desktop computer has been on the market for nine months.

Average Processor Clock Speed

The DELL OptiPlex 3040 has a pretty typical processor clock speed (3.2 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that are a comparable age to the OptiPlex 3040.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 3.2GHz processor clock speed desktop computers currently available including the Fujitsu Q556, or the Alienware Steam Machine which is cheaper.

If this personal computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo E73 (3.6GHz and cheaper), the Acer Veriton X2640G (3.7GHz and cheaper), or the DELL 3650 (3.7GHz and cheaper).
