SSD Storage Media

The EliteBook 840 has a better storage medium than most medium processor cores portable PCs that are a similar age to it. This notebook PC has an SSD storage media, whereas most laptops of this spec and age have an HDD storage media.

We compared all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media to this portable PC and we think the DELL Latitude 12 E7250[plb_2899678_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
