    It looks like some Optiplex and Elitedesk products will take only 2.5" drive bays. I need a PC that can take a 2.5" SSD, a 3.5" WD Purple, and (preferably) a CD/DVD drive. Online info is somewhat patchy. Can anyone confirm which models will do this?

    You're not going to get 4 drives in a DELL OptiPlex SFF case.
    At most 3 drives OR 2 drives and optical.

    What I need as outlined above is 1x2.5 SSD, 1x3.5 HHD, and the optical drive. I can do without the latter if pushed. That means 2 or 3 SATA ports. I don't need 4 drives.
