Just looking for recommendations to buy a Desktop for a Bioinformatician. The budget is £1000 (preferably less :-( ) We already have a powerful HPC on which we run NGS analysis/store fastq files.
This computer would be to run small applications and test scripts and store a bit of data, if needed. Currently I am looking at the following computer
DELL OptiPlex 7450 All-in-One
Processor: 7th Gen Intel® Core™ i7-7700 (QC/8MB/8T/3.6GHz/65W); supports Linux
Memory :8GB (1x8GB) 2400MHz DDR4 Non-ECC
Hard disk: 2.5inch 256GB SATA Class 20 Solid State Drive
Is there anything else I should look for, for example RAID or increase the memory to 16-24GB or include an external HDD ?
