3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

Across all the PCs that are a similar age to the 7040 the processor clock speeds range from 1.3GHz to 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz. The DELL 7040 has a quite slow processor clock speed (only 2.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers.

If this computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might want to look at the HP 550-251na (2.7GHz), or the Acer Veriton X2640G (2.7GHz).
