This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium across all medium processor core laptops that have been on the market for a comparable time to the 15.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium across similar types of portable PC.

We compared all the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media to this portable PC and we think cheaper portable PCs such as the Tecra Z50, the Tecra Z40, and the Tecra Z50 all from Toshiba is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to look at the HP ZBook 15u G2 (SSD), or the Lenovo X1 Carbon (SSD).
