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.

Alternative HDD personal computers currently available that you might also want to look at include cheaper PCs such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2160738_price], or the ProDesk 400 SFF[pl_2321044_price] both from HP or the DELL OptiPlex 7020[plb_2953764_price].

If the storage speed of this PC is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Asus Chromebox[plb_2403419_price] (SSD).

We compared this PC to all the other 500GB total storage capacity computers and we think cheaper personal computers such as the EliteDesk 800 G1[pl_2160738_price], and the ProDesk 400 SFF[pl_2321044_price] both from HP is also worth considering.

User Reviews

Reviewed 3 February 2015 by Michael S.
(Verified Purchase)

I own an older Dell Optiplex computer, and it's been rock solid for about 8 years, so that weighed heavily in my decision...

I selected this machine for a couple of reasons. I wanted Win 7 Pro because of its XP mode so I can continue to use an older, very expensive scanner, and I needed a legacy PCI slot
I recently helped a non-tech-savvy person set up a "store bought" PC from another manufacturer, and I was literally appalled at the amount of junkware that was pre-installed on that computer. One item
This Dell arrived with ZERO junkware on it. That made setting it up a pleasure instead of an ordeal
I'm not a power user, and I'm not a gamer, I just wanted a good solid reliable machine for my home business and for my personal use. This one fits the bill nicely
The machine arrived with a bad CDDVD drive, but Dell sent me a replacement quickly with zero hassle
I also found the Dell website somewhat lacking as it made it difficult to find detailed technical specs on their products
