13 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core personal computers built by DELL have good reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just medium processor core personal computers) and found that DELL also has good reviews across its entire range.

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz. At 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 has a quite fast memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040.

Chart Edit

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that came out in the last year.

Chart Edit

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

Most recently released similar spec PCs 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

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most similar spec PCs that were released in the last 12 months. 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 latest PCs.

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

Very Narrow

With a width of only 92.6 millimeters, the DELL 7040 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040. Across all the PCs that were launched around the same time as the 7040 the widths range from 34mm to 7,100mm, and the average width is 250mm.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The DELL 7040 has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,050 megahertz) compared to most of the other new medium processor core personal computers. The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of computers that have been around for a similar time to the 7040 is 1,100MHz, and the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 500MHz to 1,400MHz.

Chart Edit
