The Asus VM42 has an SSD storage medium which is faster than most computers that have been around for more than a year. Most computers of this type and age 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to the VM42.
The worst storage speed across similar types of personal computer is HDD.
There are a number of alternative SSD computers currently available that you might also want to look at including because of it's better review score, the UN62, or the VM42 (£199.98) both from Asus or the Acer Revo One RL85 (£175.11).
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Veriton M4640G (Flash and higher rated), or the Chromebox CXI2 (Flash and higher rated) both from Acer or the Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 (£659.47) (Flash and higher rated).
