The Asus VM42 has a faster storage speed than most few processor core computers that were released more than a year ago. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most few processor core computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.
An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage speed amongst all comparable spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the VM42.
