This laptop has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many comparable spec notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. 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 because of it's better review score, the Lenovo B50[plb_2478103_price] is also worth considering.
Notebook PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth looking at include the HP EliteBook 840 G1[plb_1620817_price] (SSD and cheaper).
