SSD Storage Medium

This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, which is typical of many ultrabooks that were released more than two years ago. 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 cheaper notebook PCs such as the Aspire S3-391, or the Aspire S3-391 both from Acer.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to look at the DELL XPS 13 (SSD), or the HP Pro (SSD).
