This portable PC has an HDD storage medium, which is typical of many medium processor core laptops that came out 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 all the other laptops that have an HDD storage media to this notebook PC and we think the EliteBook 820[pl_2862104_price], and the EliteBook 850[pl_2783815_price] both from HP which is cheaper; or the Lenovo T420[plb_1562255_price] which has better reviews are also worth considering.
Portable PCs with a better storage medium that might also be worth considering include the Lenovo T550[plb_2916140_price] (SSD and cheaper), or the DELL Latitude 12 7000[plb_2866963_price] (SSD and cheaper); or the Toshiba Satellite Z30[plb_2363540_price] (SSD and higher rated).
