I need to upgrade three desktops for a client. Right now they have i5 processor, 8G of RAM, Win7 Pro, 7200RPM HD.
They use heavily QB Pro 2010 and another home grown app, outlook, word and excel. lately they are getting warnings that there is heavy disk i/o and the mouse lags.
I got quotes for an optiplex but wanted 500SSD drives on them, however, only 256G, (not enough) is available. Dell offered me a 500G Hybrid/5200RPM drive. Which price wise they are happy with.
QUESTION: Is the Hybrid Hard Drive really that much good than the 7200rpm? Price difference is not much from a 7200rpm drive. I don't want to tell them to buy them if the issue is not going to get resolved. Advise?
