This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most portable PCs that have been available for around the same time as 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.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the EliteBook 820 G1.

Amongst similar types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the X1 Carbon[pl_2907060_price], or the X1 Carbon[pl_2907060_price] both from Lenovo or the Toshiba Satellite Z30[plb_2363540_price].

If the storage medium of this HP notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo T420s[plb_48433_price] (SSD).
