SSD Storage Medium

The UX303LA has a better storage medium than most notebook PCs of a comparable age and type to it. This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all laptops of this spec and age.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of laptop.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the X1 Carbon (SSD) both from Lenovo.
