The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is typical of many few processor core computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
PCs with a faster storage speed that might be worth considering include the Shuttle DSA2LS (£148.75) (Flash).
