DVD Super Multi Optical Drive Type

The optical drive type of this desktop computer is DVD Super Multi, which is the most frequently found optical drive type on PCs that came out more than a year ago.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on PCs of a comparable spec 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.

If the storage speed of this medium processor core desktop computer is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the DELL 7040 (SSD).
