It may also be worth also looking at one of the other laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available including the Asus PU551LA, or the DELL Inspiron 15 which is cheaper.

If the storage medium of this DELL notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Latitude 15 E5550 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
