SSD Storage Medium

The Tecra A50 has a better storage medium than most comparable spec notebook PCs that have been available for more than two years. This Toshiba laptop has an SSD storage medium, whereas most portable PCs of a comparable spec and age to it have an HDD storage medium.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all portable PCs that were released more than two years ago.

The worst storage medium amongst comparable types of notebook PC is HDD.

Alternative notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might also want to consider include cheaper laptops such as the HP EliteBook 840[plb_2356711_price].

If the storage medium of this Toshiba laptop is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the XPS 13[pl_1304263_price] (SSD), or the Latitude 12 E7250[pl_2367862_price] (SSD) both from DELL or the Lenovo ThinkPad X240[plb_2781600_price] (SSD).
