2 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for more than a year. 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 compared all the other HDD personal computers to this personal computer and we think the HP EliteDesk 800 G1[plb_2229962_price], and the Acer Aspire XC-705[plb_3068674_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to look at the Acer Chromebox CXI[plb_2775942_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.
