The HP 440 has a faster storage speed than most medium processor core personal computers that have been available for the last year. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most PCs 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.
This PC's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed across all comparable spec PCs that have been available for the last year.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of PC.
