This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many comparable spec notebook PCs that are a similar age to it. 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 portable PC to all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media and we think cheaper notebook PCs such as the ZBook 15, the EliteBook 745, and the ZBook (£596.28) all from HP is also worth considering.
If the storage medium of this laptop is too bad for you then you might want to look at the DELL Precision M4800 (Hybrid-HDD).
