Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Intel BOXNUC5PGYH0AJ has a Flash storage medium which is faster than most personal computers that were released more than a year ago. Most desktop computers that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium. Flash Drives 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. The worst storage speed of all personal computers that have been available for more than a year is HDD and the best is SSD.

Other Flash PCs currently available that you might also want to look at include because of it's better review score, the MeLE PCG09, the Zotac ZBOX PI320, or the Asus CHROMEBIT (£74.25).

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to look at the Zotac ZBOX CI320 nano (SSD), or the HP 800 G1 (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Bought for my Dad for mainly browsing the web...

Can replace Ram and add another HDD
Can play 1080p videos on YouTube
Smooth Windows 10 experience
Would be great for streaming Steam games
This is great for an HTPC. It has just enough power to breeze through 1080p mkvs (with MPC-HC), youtube, hulu, netflix, etc. The product is very easy to setup and build quality feels great
Only 16 gigs of available HDD space
Comes with only 2 gigs of ram
Only one ram slot
You may think the 2.5" SSD is optional but there was some Windows 10 upgrade available that required 11GB of space, and without the secondary drive available I wouldn't have even been able to fully up
