The EliteDesk 705 G1 has a faster storage speed than most comparable spec computers that have been on the market for more than two years. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that have been around for a comparable time to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the EliteDesk 705 G1.
Amongst comparable types of desktop computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
There are a number of alternative SSD PCs currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the DELL Precision T1700 SFF (£597.39).
