A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.

If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the OptiPlex 3040 (SSD), or the OptiPlex 3040 (SSD) both from DELL.

With a depth of only 176 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3040 is one of the shallower few processor core computers that have been available for the last year amongst few processor core computers of this age. The depths of few processor core computers that are a similar age to the OptiPlex 3040 range from 83mm to 440mm, and the average depth is 280mm.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Few processor core computers that have been available for the last year have widths of between 34mm and 440mm. At only 36 millimeters, the OptiPlex 3040 is very narrow compared to most of the other recently released few processor core computers.

3 Reasons Against

Quite Slow On-Board Graphics Adapter Dynamic Frequency

The average on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency of similar spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040 is 1,000MHz. The OptiPlex 3040 has one of the slower on-board graphics adapter dynamic frequencies (only 950 megahertz) amongst similar spec PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Only Two USB 2.0 Ports

The OptiPlex 3040 is a two USB 2.0 port personal computer.

Chart Edit

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed

The memory clock speeds of few processor core computers that have been available for the last year range from 1,600MHz to 2,200MHz. With a memory clock speed of only 1,600 megahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a quite slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other newly released few processor core computers.

4 Other reasons to consider the DELL OptiPlex 3040

Average Processor Clock Speed

At 3.2 gigahertz, the OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly standard processor clock speed compared to most of the other few processor core computers that came out in the last year.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 3.2GHz processor clock speed personal computers currently available including the Alienware Alpha which is cheaper.

If this desktop computer processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Lenovo 510s (3.7GHz) which also has a higher rating.

Average Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of 500 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the OptiPlex 3040.

If you are looking for a personal computer with a bigger total storage capacity then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s (1TB and higher rated); or the Acer Veriton X2640G (1TB and cheaper).

Average Hard Drive Capacity

The OptiPlex 3040 has a fairly average hard drive capacity (500 gigabytes) compared to most of the other latest few processor core computers.

Desktop computers with a bigger hard drive capacity that might be worth considering include the Acer Veriton X2640G (1TB and cheaper); or the Lenovo 510s (1TB and higher rated).

Average Internal Memory

At 4 gigabytes, the OptiPlex 3040 has a relatively standard internal memory compared to most of the other recently released few processor core computers.

We compared this PC to all the other 4GB memory personal computers and we think cheaper computers such as the DELL 3250 is also worth considering.

If this desktop computer internal memory is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Lenovo 510s (8GB and higher rated).
