Most medium processor core laptops that were released more than two years ago have an HDD storage medium. 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.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium amongst all notebook PCs of this age and spec.

The worst storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC is HDD.

Alternative portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available that you might also want to consider include cheaper notebook PCs such as the Tecra Z40, or the Tecra Z40 both from Toshiba or the HP EliteBook 840 ($699.95).

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might want to look at the DELL XPS 13 (SSD), or the Asus UX303LA (SSD).
