Hi Aaron!

Sure ... if you do not need the added RAM, then why pay more Smile

I actually also do not need it, but I nearly went one tear higher, as it is
nice to have Smile and having 320 GB SSD would have been nice.

My previous product (same company) cost 1 EUR less and had double the storage.
(2 Xeon cores, 6 GB RAM, 320 GB SATA)
The difference is SATA (mechanical disk) vs. SSD (Flash).
It is 10 times faster now, but sadly only half as large Smile
