8 Reasons Against

Only HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is HDD, which is typical of many PCs of a similar age and type 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 compared all the other HDD personal computers to this desktop computer and we think the HP 8300 SFF[plb_1473123_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

Computers with a faster storage speed that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteDesk 800 G1 Mini[plb_2578763_price] (SSD).
