The LifeBook E744 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most similar spec portable PCs that came out more than two years ago. Most comparable spec notebook PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to 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.
This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs 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 medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the T420s (£1,388.87) (SSD), or the X1 Carbon (£2,116.07) (SSD) both from Lenovo.
