Dell OptiPlex 3040 Desktop PC (Manufacturer Refurbished)
Ideal for the home or office, this compact desktop PC comes loaded with all of the hardware you need to stay productive, including a quad-core processor, an array of USB ports, and a 500GB hard drive to store all of your files.
Smooth, Fluid Multitasking
This desktop PC can power through heavy multitasking thanks to its speedy Intel Core i5 processor, which divvies up simultaneously tasks among its four independently operating cores to balance the workload. This allows it to minimize onscreen lag as you bounce from program to program editing photos, streaming HD movies, and listening to your favorite music playlists.
Speedy Data Transfers with USB 3.0
A USB 3.0 SuperSpeed port transfers files to and from your computer at more than 10 times the speed of USB 2.0, which is especially helpful when you have a gigantic project on a flash drive, or you want to backup all of your files to an external hard drive. If your connected device uses USB 2.0, the port can still move bits and bytes with no sweat at 2.0 speeds, thanks to its backwards compatibility.
Expand Your Workstation
Equipped with a wide variety of ports and terminals, the Dell OptiPlex 3040 gives your workstation plenty of potential to grow. Its eight USB ports let you plug in the included keyboard and mouse, as well as other peripherals such as a drawing tablet, printer, or scanner. Complete your desktop setup by plugging in an HD monitor into the PC’s HDMI port.

Michael Dell has always been a little bit ahead of the pack. At the age of 16, he was running a personal stamp auction and newspaper subscription service, earning more money than his high school Economics teacher. As a freshman at the University of Texas, he was building and selling computers while his classmates were busy dissecting the latest Air Supply record. By 27, Dell had earned a ranking on the Fortune 500, the youngest CEO to do so.
Dell’s drive for innovation became the core that powered Dell Inc. His belief that “technology is about enabling human potential” helped cement the company as the cornerstone of the PC revolution, especially once the advent of the Internet kickstarted the brand’s enthusiastic embrace of online sales and customer service. Today, Dell remains a reliable name in PC desktops, laptops, and accessories for work or home, especially with the company’s unique customizable features.
