5 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core PCs that were released around the same time as 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD computers currently available including the Pro 3500[pl_2264500_price], or the EliteDesk 800 G1 SFF[pl_2323174_price] both from HP or the Asus G10AC[plb_2379516_price] which is cheaper.

If the storage speed of this computer is too slow for you then you might want to consider the DELL Precision T1700 SFF[plb_2676603_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.
