This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on notebook PCs of this age and type. 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.
It may also be worth considering one of the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including the Switch 10, or the Switch 10 both from Acer which is cheaper.
If you are looking for a portable PC with a better storage medium then you might also want to consider the Lenovo Yoga ($1,199.98) (SSD).
