There are a number of alternative notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to consider including cheaper notebook PCs such as the DELL Inspiron 17R[plb_1412334_price].

If this medium processor core notebook PC total storage capacity is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP ProBook 450 G1[plb_2133196_price] (750GB), or the Toshiba Satellite C55-B[plb_2700637_price] (750GB) which is also cheaper.
