SSD Storage Medium
The ATIV Book 9 has an SSD storage medium which is better than most medium processor core laptops that have been around for a similar time to it. Most medium processor core laptops that came out 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.
This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs of this age and type.
The worst storage medium amongst comparable types of portable PC is HDD.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper laptops such as the XPS 13, or the Latitude 14 7000 (£1,429.18) both from DELL or the Toshiba Satellite Z30.
If the storage medium of this notebook PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the HP ZBook 17 (£2,100.98) (SSD).
Has a Full-Size Keyboard
The ATIV Book 9 has a full-size keyboard, as do most of the other portable PCs that are a similar age to the ATIV Book 9.
