10 Reasons For

DELL Desktop Computers Have Good Reviews

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

Only Released Five Months Ago

The 7040 was only relased by DELL five months ago. Newer computers like this one are likely to have more advanced features.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has a faster storage speed than most latest similar spec personal computers. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most recently released comparable spec 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 amongst all new PCs.

Amongst comparable types of computer the worst storage speed is HDD.

This personal computer has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type, which is typical of many comparable spec PCs that have been around for the last year.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Solid-State Drive Capacity

At 256 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a quite big solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last year. The solid-state drive capacities of medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040 range from 32GB to 520GB.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The average depth of personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040 is 320mm, and the depths range from 33mm to 600mm. With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is fairly shallow compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Light

The weight of the DELL 7040 of only 1.3 kilograms is one of the lightest amongst new computers. Latest medium processor core personal computers have weights of between 38g and 16kg, and the average weight is 6.4kg.

New computers have maximum on-board graphics adapter memories of between 1GB and 64GB, and the average maximum on-board graphics adapter memory is 8.5GB. The DELL 7040 has a quite small maximum on-board graphics adapter memory (only 1.7 gigabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 7040.

Chart Edit

Only IEEE 802.11a WiFi Standard

This personal computer supports an IEEE 802.11ac WiFi standard, which is the most frequently supported WiFi standard on latest medium processor core personal computers.

Chart Edit

Only One DisplayPort

The DELL 7040 is a one DisplayPort personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of only 16 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other new personal computers.
