Most medium processor core portable PCs that were launched 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. Across all medium processor core portable PCs that were released in the last year the storage medium ranges from HDD (worst) to Flash (best).
1920 X 1080 Pixels Display Resolution
