The only sacrifice you face would be the lack of a built-in disc drive.

Re: Dell OptiPlex 160 Released

If you want until next year, the OptiPlex 160 will come with a dual-core Atom processor just in case you need more computing power. Those who have a little bit more cash to spare, they can always opt for a 64GB SSD and an external DVD-ROM drive to complete the system.
