20 Reasons For

Good Brand

Medium processor core personal computers built by DELL have good reviews on average compared to other brands. 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.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

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

The DELL 7040 is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released in the last 12 months have between one and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

Across all the personal computers that were released in the last 12 months the on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies range from 500MHz to 1,400MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The DELL 7040 has a fairly fast on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (1,150 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the 7040.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The DELL 7040 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year. Most medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to it 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 actually the best storage speed across all comparable spec desktop computers that are a similar age to the 7040.

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

We think you might also be interested in some of the other SSD PCs currently available including the P310[pl_3192586_price], or the P310[pl_3192629_price] both from Lenovo or the HP DWS BUNDEL Z240 SFF 4Core 3.5GHz CPU, NVIDIA K1200, 16GB geheugen, 256GB SSD (J9C03ET+T7T59AT)[plb_3338320_price] which is cheaper.

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other newly released medium processor core personal computers.

There are a number of other 8GB memory PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including cheaper computers such as the Alienware X51 R3[plb_3023475_price], or the DELL 7040[plb_3074347_price].

Desktop computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth looking at include the 240 SFF[pl_3290411_price] (16GB), or the DWS BUNDEL Z240 SFF 4Core 3.5GHz CPU, NVIDIA K1200, 16GB geheugen, 256GB SSD (J9C03ET+T7T59AT)[pl_3338320_price] (16GB) both from HP which is also cheaper.
