An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium amongst all laptops that have been on the market for a similar time to the Elitebook 1040 G2.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of notebook PC.

Alternative laptops that have an SSD storage media currently available which you might want to look at include the Acer Aspire S7-393, the Lenovo T550, or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 which is cheaper; or the Satellite Z30, or the Satellite Z30 both from Toshiba or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 which has better reviews.
