20 Reasons For

DELL Has Good PC Reviews

DELL is one of the superior personal computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and DELL also has good ratings for its medium processor core personal computers.

Quite Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The DELL 7040 has one of the faster memory clock speeds supported by processors (2,133 megahertz) amongst comparable spec computers of this age. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most commonly supported processor operating mode on computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Burst Frequency

With an on-board graphics adapter burst frequency of 1,100 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite fast on-board graphics adapter burst frequency compared to most of the other computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040. The on-board graphics adapter burst frequencies of computers of a comparable age and spec to the 7040 range from 640MHz to 1,200MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter burst frequency is 940MHz.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This PC supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is typical of many similar spec PCs that were released around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports

Most medium processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the DELL 7040 which has six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 64 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and type to the 7040. The average max internal memory supported processor of desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040 is 65GB, and the max internal memory supported processors range from 2GB to 770GB.

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 comparable spec personal computers of this age. Across all the computers of a similar spec and age to the 7040 the max memory bandwidth supported processor range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it. Most personal computers that were released one year ago 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 personal computers of a similar spec and age to the 7040.

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

It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD computers currently available including the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price], the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148220_price], or the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF[plb_2867167_price] which is cheaper.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The DELL 7040 has a newer internal memory type than most comparable spec PCs that have been available for a similar time to it. This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to it have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is in fact the best internal memory type across all medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

A DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type is the worst internal memory type amongst similar types of computer.

Very High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

The lowest system bus data transfer rate of desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the 7040 is 5GT/s and the highest is 8GT/s. The DELL 7040 has a very high system bus data transfer rate (8 Gigatransfers per second) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 port computer.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

Chart Edit

Very Light

Similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040 have weights of between 38g and 100kg. The DELL 7040 is quite light (only 1.4 kilograms) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Chart Edit

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies of comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the 7040 range from 640MHz to 1,300MHz. With an on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of only 1,100 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

Medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 have total storage capacity of between 4GB and 3.6TB. With a total storage capacity of only 128 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.

We compared this personal computer to all the other 128GB total storage capacity PCs and we think the HP ProDesk 600 G2 Mini[plb_3070061_price], the DELL OptiPlex 3020 SFF[plb_2867167_price], and the Zoostorm Intel Core i5 Delta[plb_2756335_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you want a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu P556[plb_3148220_price] (256GB), or the HP 800 G2[plb_3255262_price] (256GB) which is also cheaper.

Chart Edit

Only Has One Memory Slot

The DELL 7040 has a greater number of memory slots than most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it. The most frequently found memory slot is 4x DIMM, but this memory slot is not found on this personal computer. The memory slots 2x DIMM are also found on this computer.

Chart Edit

Only Bronze EPEAT Compliance

The DELL 7040 has a better EPEAT compliance than most personal computers of a comparable spec and age to it. This personal computer has a Bronze EPEAT compliance, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have a Gold EPEAT compliance.

This computer's EPEAT compliance (Bronze) is actually the worst EPEAT compliance across all medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 7040.

A Gold EPEAT compliance is the best EPEAT compliance amongst similar types of computer.

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040

Released Over a Year Ago

This DELL computer was released over a year ago.

Average Internal Memory

The DELL 7040 has a pretty typical internal memory (8 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

We compared all the other 8GB memory desktop computers to this computer and we think the Alienware X51 R2[plb_2373451_price], and the Lenovo H50[plb_2758491_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might also be worth considering include the Aspire TC-705[pl_3095333_price] (12GB), or the Aspire X3-710[pl_3192159_price] (12GB) both from Acer or the HP 800 G2[plb_3797297_price] (16GB) which is also cheaper.
