HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

If you would prefer a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the S540 (SSD) both from Lenovo.
