The Apple Mac Mini Late 2014 has a faster storage speed than most computers of a comparable age and spec to it. This PC has a Flash storage medium, whereas most computers that are a comparable 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. Across all similar spec PCs that have been available for more than two years the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.
