SSD Storage Media

The Acer Chromebox CXI2 has an SSD storage media which is faster than the HDD storage media found on most PCs that have been around for more than a year. 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 media is actually the best storage speed amongst all few processor cores computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Chromebox CXI2.

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