No hard drive. No DVD drive.
Only 8 gig RAM
Medium slow processors
Price is about ridiculous.
SSD > HD
USB > DVD
You still might have a valid point…
Newegg has a similar unit on sale for $499 NEW with a newer 7th gen processor
(have to use promo code EMCPXRE73) at checkout found this in email deals
FWIW That one only has 4GB ram and a mechanical hard drive.
Cool. Now find me something cheaper with better specs, same form factor and 3-year warranty.
Medium-slow processor my ass. The i7-6700T has a Passmark of over 9000 (obvious joke ignored) with a single-thread score of almost 2000. That ain’t bad at all. It almost matches my new ThinkPad’s 8th generation Core i7.
Just be sure and get the SSD. The mechanical hard drives in this model redefine the word “slow”.
SSD’s are pretty cheap these days. Easy to migrate it to one. Newsegg has a nice deal.
