Minitower vs microtower

by dz111222 / January 19, 2006 11:15 AM PST

I have looked at the Dell website, some computers are microtower, other are minitower. What is the difference, I do not have a space limitation but I am curious if a microtower limits upgrade capabilties. Thanks,dz

are sooooo hard to work with. I was fixing a CPU fan for a HP one and took me a bloody our to remove the accursed power supply because it was so cramped. And forget about adding memory. You'd have to unscrew the motherboard to get to those. Not worth it.
