I was interested in purchasing the PC shown in the link below as a replacement for one of my PCs. Removing the hard drive saves you $129 and adding the next processor upgrade for $100 gives you HT which seems to be a very good price for the processing power. However, I noticed that the hard drives are 'cabled' hard drives and I can't find any information on what exactly that means. If a regular SATA hard drive fits into this PC then it would be a good buy. Anyone know what a 'cabled' hard drive is?

If you scroll down to the hard drive options, it says 1 to 4 SATA hard drives.
Cabled hard drives may just mean they are connected with cables.

They also spelled onboard wrong the second time .
Onboard SATA, 1-4 Hard Drives connected to onbaord SATA Controller -No RAID
Make sure this is the real Dell site......

It's the real Dell website complete with typos. Seems to be a good deal as I can buy my own hard drive for much less than $129 and don't need someone else to plug it in for me.
