This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many comparable spec portable PCs that have been on the market for more than two years. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
We compared this laptop to all the other portable PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the Asus N56VZ is also worth considering.
Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might be worth considering include the Lenovo 11e (SSD).
