HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this personal computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other HDD PCs currently available including the Fujitsu W530[plb_2954179_price], or the Alienware Alpha[plb_3054588_price] which is cheaper.

If you want a computer with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[pl_3169875_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the P310[pl_3192586_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from Lenovo.
