16 Reasons For

DELL Has Good Reviews for Its PCs

We calculated the average ratings for all DELL PCs and also specifically for DELL medium processor core personal computers and found that in both cases DELL had good ratings compared to other manufacturers.

Very Fast Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The memory clock speeds supported by processors of desktop computers that are a similar age to the 7040 Micro range from 800MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,500MHz. With a memory clock speed supported by processor of 2,133 megahertz, the DELL 7040 Micro's memory clock speed supported by processor is one of the fastest amongst medium processor core personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 Micro.

Chart Edit

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 medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

4.4 On-Board Graphics Adapter OpenGL Version

This personal computer supports a 4.4 on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version, which is the most frequently supported on-board graphics adapter OpenGL version on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

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

The 7040 Micro is a six USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port computer.

Chart Edit

SSD Storage Medium

The 7040 Micro has a faster storage speed than most PCs that have been available for around the same time as it. This DELL PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as 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.

This desktop computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 Micro.

The worst storage speed amongst comparable types of desktop computer is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative SSD computers currently available including the 7040, or the 7040 both from DELL which is cheaper.

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

DDR4-SDRAM Internal Memory Type

The DELL 7040 Micro has a DDR4-SDRAM internal memory type which is newer than most computers of this spec and age. Most medium processor core personal computers that were released one year ago have a DDR3-SDRAM internal memory type.

This personal computer's internal memory type (DDR4-SDRAM) is actually the best internal memory type across all similar spec personal computers that were released more than a year ago.

Across comparable types of personal computer the worst internal memory type is DDR3-SDRAM.

Chart Edit

Fairly High System Bus Data Transfer Rate

At 8 Gigatransfers per second, the 7040 Micro has a quite high system bus data transfer rate compared to most of the other PCs of a similar age and spec to the 7040 Micro. Across all the similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the 7040 Micro the system bus data transfer rates range from 5GT/s to 8GT/s, and the average system bus data transfer rate is 6GT/s.

Chart Edit

Six USB 3.0 Ports

Most PCs of a similar type and age to the 7040 Micro have between one and seven USB 3.0 ports, including the 7040 Micro which has six USB 3.0 ports.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

With a maximum internal memory of 65,536 megabytes, the 7040 Micro has one of the bigger maximum internal memory amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Computers that came out more than a year ago have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 790GB, and the average maximum internal memory is 75GB.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The 7040 Micro is one of the shallower comparable spec personal computers that were launched more than a year ago (only 176 millimeters) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the 7040 Micro have depths of between 31mm and 590mm.

Chart Edit

Light

The 7040 Micro is fairly light (only 1.3 kilograms) compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the 7040 Micro. The average weight of personal computers of a similar spec and age to the 7040 Micro is 7.5kg, and the weights range from 38g to 100kg.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The DELL 7040 Micro is very narrow (only 36 millimeters) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that came out around the same time as the 7040 Micro. The narrowest computer of this spec and age is 33mm wide, the widest is 510mm, and the average width is 180mm.

8 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The slowest on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of PCs of this type and age is 640MHz, the fastest is 1,300MHz, and the average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency is 1,100MHz. The 7040 Micro has a fairly slow on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (only 1,100 megahertz) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the 7040 Micro.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than a year ago range from 4GB to 3.6TB. The 7040 Micro has one of the smaller total storage capacity (only 128 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age.

Alternative 128GB total storage capacity computers currently available that you might want to consider include the 7040, or the 7040 both from DELL or the HP EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the 800 G2 (256GB and cheaper), or the 800 G2 (500GB and cheaper) both from HP.

Quite Slow Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of only 2.5 gigahertz, the 7040 Micro has a quite slow processor clock speed compared to most of the other PCs of a comparable age and spec to the 7040 Micro. The slowest processor clock speed of medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 7040 Micro is 1.3GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

We compared all the other 2.5GHz processor clock speed personal computers to this personal computer and we think the EliteDesk 800 G2 Mini, and the ProDesk 600 G2 Mini both from HP or the DELL 7040 which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this DELL desktop computer processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Aspire X3-710 (2.7GHz and cheaper), or the HP 800 G2 (2.8GHz and cheaper).

2 Other reasons to consider the DELL 7040 Micro

Released Over a Year Ago

This desktop computer has been on the market for over a year.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 8 gigabytes, the DELL 7040 Micro has a fairly average internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the 7040 Micro.

There are a number of alternative 8GB memory PCs currently available which you might want to consider including cheaper PCs such as the Alienware X51, or the Acer Predator G3-710.

If this computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Acer Aspire X3-710 (12GB) which is also cheaper.
