5 Reasons Against
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers of a similar 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.
Personal computers with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Fujitsu W530 (£1,035.63) (SSD).
Only 11 On-Board Graphics Adapter DirectX Version
This computer supports a 11.1 on-board graphics adapter DirectX version, which is typical of many medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as it.
Very Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
With a solid-state drive capacity of only 32 gigabytes, the DELL XPS 8700 has one of the smaller solid-state drive capacities amongst medium processor core computers of this age. The solid-state drive capacities of personal computers of a similar age and type to the XPS 8700 range from 8GB to 1TB.
Only One PCI Express X4 (Gen 3.x) Slot
The XPS 8700 is a one PCI Express x4 (Gen 3.x) slot desktop computer. Most of the other medium processor core computers that have been on the market for more than a year have one PCI Express x4 (Gen 3.x) slot.
+2 More reasons against
The weights of medium processor core computers that have been available for more than a year range from 38g to 23kg. At 13.8 kilograms, the XPS 8700 is very heavy compared to most of the other medium processor core computers that came out around the same time as the XPS 8700.
