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.

Alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might want to look at include the X1 Carbon (£911.53), or the X1 Carbon (£911.53) both from Lenovo which has better reviews; or the X1 Carbon Touch, or the X1 Carbon Touch both from Lenovo or the HP Pro which is cheaper.

We compared this laptop to all the other 128GB total storage capacity portable PCs and we think the HP Pro, and the DELL Latitude 12 E7240 (£1,098.00) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If you would prefer a laptop with a bigger total storage capacity then you might also want to consider the X1 Carbon (180GB and cheaper), or the X240 (£1,299.89) (256GB and cheaper) both from Lenovo or the Lenovo X1 Carbon (£911.53) (180GB and higher rated).
