The Lenovo X250 has one of the faster processor clock speeds (2.6 gigahertz) amongst medium processor core laptops of this age. The average processor clock speed of medium processor core laptops that came out around the same time as the X250 is 2.2GHz, and the processor clock speeds range from 0.8GHz to 3.3GHz.

An SSD storage medium is in fact the best storage medium across all notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the X250.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst comparable types of laptop.

We compared all the other portable PCs that have an SSD storage media to this notebook PC and we think the T450, and the T550 both from Lenovo or the HP ProBook 650 ($927.22) which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If the storage medium of this portable PC is not good enough for you then you might also want to consider the Toshiba Tecra Z50 (SSD).
