The Elitebook 1040 G2 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most laptops of a comparable age and spec to it. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

This laptop's storage medium (SSD) is in fact the best storage medium amongst all laptops of this type and age.

Amongst similar types of laptop the worst storage medium is HDD.

We compared all the other laptops that have an SSD storage media to this laptop and we think the Lenovo T550, and the Toshiba Z30 which is cheaper; or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 which has better reviews are also worth considering.

Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth considering include the Toshiba Tecra Z40 (SSD).
