The XPS 8700 is a one 2.5" bay computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that came out in the last 12 months have between one and three 2.5" bays.
The lightest medium processor core computer that has been around for a similar time to the XPS 8700 is 38g heavy and the heaviest is 23kg. At 13.8 kilograms, the XPS 8700 is quite heavy compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the XPS 8700.
3 Other reasons to consider the DELL XPS 8700
Average Hard Drive Capacity
With a hard drive capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the XPS 8700 has a relatively typical hard drive capacity compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for the last year.
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 1,000 gigabyte, the XPS 8700 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other recently released medium processor core computers.
HDD Storage Medium
