Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal computers of a similar type and age to it. 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.

Alternative HDD PCs currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper personal computers such as the DELL Vostro 3900[plb_2856434_price].

If the storage speed of this personal computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL OptiPlex 9020 SFF[plb_2414879_price] (SSD), or the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_3106865_price] (SSD).
