SSD Storage Medium

The Satellite S50-B has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most notebook PCs that have been available for more than a year. 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 actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to the Satellite S50-B.

Amongst similar types of notebook PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

If you would prefer a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to look at the Elitebook 820 G2 (£750.00) (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 G2 (£529.99) (SSD) both from HP.
