The HP 440 has an SSD storage media which is faster than most new medium processor cores computers. Most medium processor cores computers that came out around the same time as it have an HDD storage media. 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 computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor cores computers that were launched in the last year.
An HDD storage media is the worst storage speed across comparable types of computer.
