The HP 440 has a faster storage speed than most latest medium processor core PCs. This HP computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most comparable spec PCs that have been available for around the same time as it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) 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.
This personal computer's storage speed (SSD) is actually the best storage speed amongst all medium processor core PCs that came out in the last 12 months.
An HDD storage medium is the worst storage speed amongst similar types of personal computer.
We compared this personal computer to all the other SSD PCs and we think the Z240 ($1,632.86), the Z240, and the 240 Tower all from HP which is cheaper is also worth considering.
