The Asus T100TA has an HDD storage medium which is better than the SSD storage medium found on most laptops that were launched more than two years ago. 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.
An HDD storage medium is in fact the worst storage medium amongst all laptops that have been on the market for around the same time as the T100TA.
An SSD storage medium is the best storage medium across similar types of portable PC.
If you would prefer a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the Lenovo Yoga[plb_2430247_price] (SSD), or the HP Pavilion x360[plb_2404650_price] (SSD).
