The ENVY x360 has an HDD storage medium which is better than the SSD storage medium found on most 2 in 1 laptops that were launched around the same time as it.

This laptop's storage medium (HDD) is actually the worst storage medium amongst all 2 in 1 laptops that have been around for a comparable time to the ENVY x360.

We compared this portable PC to all the other notebook PCs that have an HDD storage media and we think the FLEX 15[pl_2038302_price], and the Yoga[pl_2213003_price] both from Lenovo which is cheaper is also worth considering.
If you would prefer a laptop with a better storage medium then you might want to consider the Satellite U920t[pl_1448768_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the Satellite U920t[pl_1449405_price] (SSD and cheaper) both from Toshiba.
