5 Other reasons to consider the Fujitsu W530

Released Eleven Months Ago

It was eleven months ago when this medium processor core desktop computer was released.

Average Hard Drive Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Fujitsu W530 has a relatively average hard drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the W530.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1TB hard drive capacity PCs currently available including cheaper desktop computers such as the Alienware Alpha[plb_2706467_price].

If this desktop computer hard drive capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL 3650[plb_3450642_price] (2TB and cheaper), or the HP 550-170na[plb_3747342_price] (2TB and cheaper).

Average Total Storage Capacity

At 1,000 gigabyte, the Fujitsu W530 has a relatively standard total storage capacity compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the W530.

It may also be worth considering one of the alternative 1TB total storage capacity PCs currently available including the Alienware Alpha[plb_2706467_price] which is cheaper.

If this medium processor core desktop computer total storage capacity is too small for you then you might want to consider the DELL 3650[plb_3450642_price] (2TB), or the HP 550-170na[plb_3747342_price] (2TB) which is also cheaper.

Average Internal Memory

At 8 gigabytes, the Fujitsu W530 has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other new desktop computers.

Alternative 8GB memory desktop computers currently available which you might want to look at include cheaper computers such as the Alpha[pl_2706467_price], or the Alpha[pl_3054588_price] both from Alienware.

If this computer internal memory is too small for you then you might also want to look at the DELL 3650[plb_3450642_price] (16GB) which is also cheaper.

HDD Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched in the last 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 computers to this desktop computer and we think the Alpha[pl_2706467_price], and the Alpha[pl_3801416_price] both from Alienware which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkCentre M900 Tiny[plb_3169875_price] (SSD and cheaper).
