5 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040

Average Processor Clock Speed

The DELL 7040 has a relatively typical processor clock speed (3.4 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were released in the last year.

If this medium processor core desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z230 (3.6GHz and cheaper).

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 has a pretty average internal memory compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been on the market for the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other 8GB memory PCs currently available including cheaper PCs such as the Fujitsu W530, or the Alienware Alpha.

Computers with a bigger internal memory that might be worth considering include the 240 SFF (16GB), or the DWS BUNDEL Z240 SFF 4Core 3.5GHz CPU, NVIDIA K1200, 16GB geheugen, 256GB SSD (J9C03ET+T7T59AT) (16GB) both from HP.

We compared all the other HDD PCs to this PC and we think the Fujitsu W530, and the Alienware Alpha which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this medium processor core desktop computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny (SSD) which is also cheaper.
