SSD Storage Medium

The Asus UX303LA has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most similar spec laptops that have been on the market for more than two years. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This notebook PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium amongst all portable PCs of a similar age and spec to the UX303LA.

Amongst comparable types of notebook PC the worst storage medium is HDD.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including cheaper portable PCs such as the XPS 13[pl_1497490_price], or the XPS 13[pl_1497490_price] both from DELL.

If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the HP EliteBook 840[plb_2356711_price] (SSD), or the DELL XPS 13[plb_2618156_price] (SSD).
