This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on laptops that came out more than a year ago. 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.
There are a number of alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper laptops such as the Toshiba Satellite C50-B.
If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo T450 (£361.60) (SSD and cheaper); or the Asus UX301LA (£490.00) (SSD and higher rated).
