Any system sold today should have an SSD as standard at this point. Even if it's just a low capacity boot drive the difference it makes to overall system performance is too huge to ignore.

Spec is confused; quotes 1TB but under features states "This Desktop features a generous 2TB HDD".

I saw that too. I’m going with what it says in the technical pdf. I think it has 1Tb hard drive

I agree. It is kind of ridiculous. Especially in laptops considering mechanical drives don’t like being moved

Not really, hard drives easily tolerate normal movement. You have to really slam them about to damage them, and most laptops won't survive that sort of punishment any longer than the drive will.


Although I agree anything with a mid-range processor like this should have an SSD as standard. I'd rather have a 7100 and an SSD than a 7400 and a hard drive.

I don't want to P*ss on anyone's hopes! But I had three of these all got returned for different faults! I then upgraded to a HP Pav 570-p076na DT PC UK The first one had a very noisy HDD the second one has just gone back with graphics card failure.

Yet the last HP PC I bought has lasted almost 6 years without a fault and still gong strong!

Hard drives don’t like being moved. They will last longer if not banged about, granted but definitely won’t take as many knocks before failure as a well constructed device. For example my iPad is still going strong 6 years later but if it had a mechanical drive it would have most likely started to fail with the ‘normal movement by now. A drive shouldn’t have to “tolerate” they should all be made for purpose but as with the DVD/BLU-Ray debate in my opinion inferior tech should just be phased out lol.
