4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly average processor clock speed compared to most of the other new desktop computers.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.

We compared this desktop computer to all the other 500GB total storage capacity PCs and we think the Lenovo E73[plb_3674642_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this computer total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB and higher rated).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a pretty standard hard drive capacity compared to most of the other few processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 500GB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Lenovo E73[plb_3674642_price].

If you want a computer with a bigger hard drive capacity then you might also want to consider the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (1TB and higher rated).

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a pretty standard internal memory compared to most of the other recently released few processor core personal computers.

It may also be worth considering one of the other 4GB memory computers currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the Lenovo E73[plb_3674642_price].

Personal computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth looking at include the Lenovo 510s[plb_3784745_price] (8GB) which also has a higher rating.
