SSD Storage Medium

The 240 Tower has a faster storage speed than most computers that have been available for a comparable time to it. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to 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 in fact the best storage speed amongst all latest personal computers.

Amongst similar types of personal computer the worst storage speed is HDD.
