Dell Optiplex 3040 Small Form Factor

 

The Dell Optiplex 3040 Small Form Factor business desktop has a sixth-generation Intel Core i5 processor and some room for external expansion. It's a fine choice for a growing SMB or home office.

Compact chassis with some internal expansion space. Generous port selection. Easy to service.

Half-height PCIe slots. Lacks integrated Wi-Fi.

The Dell Optiplex 3040 Small Form Factor is a fine choice for the small- to medium-size business that's poised for rapid growth in the near future. Expandability and serviceability are strong points for this desktop, as are its easily replaceable...

Dell OptiPlex 3040 SFF

 

quick machine

description didnt match what i bought. no SD card bay and the description says a 2 out of 3 internal bays are used for the HD and DVD drive. It appears there are only actually 2 bays so the future expansion of an additional HD is not possible

Dell OptiPlex 3040 SFF

 

Really quick and quiet. Love it! I prefer that it comes with Windows 7 with the option of upgrading with the Windows 10 installation disk.

The tower doesn't come with VGA or dvi port). Not a big issue as I bought a hdmi-dvi cable to connect to my monitor.

Little adware on the computer. After service was excellent

The computer came with Windows 7 pre installed in German!
