This notebook PC has an hdd storage medium, which is the most frequently found storage medium on portable PCs of this spec and age. 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 notebook PC to all the other portable PCs that have an hdd storage media and we think because of it's better review score, the Lenovo Z51 is also worth considering.
If the storage medium of this portable PC is too bad for you then you might want to consider the DELL XPS 13 (SSD and cheaper).
