Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium amongst all medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than a year ago.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of laptop.

If the storage medium of this Toshiba notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the Elitebook 820 G2[pl_2886802_price] (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2[pl_2897415_price] (SSD) both from HP.
