This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many notebook PCs 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.
We compared this laptop to all the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think the EliteBook 840, and the ProBook 450 both from HP or the Lenovo ThinkPad T540 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a notebook PC with a better storage medium then you might want to look at the EliteBook 840 (SSD), or the EliteBook 820 (SSD) both from HP which is also cheaper.
