This notebook PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that were launched more than two years ago. HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.
There are a number of other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might also want to look at including the HP 2570p which has better reviews.
If you would prefer a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the HP Stream 11 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
