This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on laptops of this age and type. 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.
We compared this laptop to all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media and we think cheaper laptops such as the ThinkPad X240[pl_2036009_price], and the ThinkPad X240[pl_2036009_price] both from Lenovo is also worth considering.
If the storage medium of this ultrabook is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Latitude 14 E7440[plb_1619978_price] (SSD), or the Fujitsu LifeBook U904[plb_2039480_price] (SSD).
