The iMac Late 2013 has a faster storage speed than most personal computers of this age and spec. This desktop computer has a Flash storage medium, whereas most PCs that are a similar age to it have an HDD storage medium. Flash Drives store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive. The storage speed of all desktop computers that have been available for more than two years ranges from HDD to SSD.
