This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that are a comparable age to it. 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.
Alternative laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available which you might want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Asus F551CA, or the Lenovo G510.
If the storage medium of this medium processor core notebook PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Fujitsu LifeBook A544 (SSD) which is also cheaper.
