The HP Chromebox has a faster storage speed than most few processor core personal computers that came out in the last year. This computer has an SSD storage medium, whereas most new few processor core personal computers 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 PC's storage speed (SSD) is in fact the best storage speed amongst all new few processor core personal computers.
Amongst similar types of PC the worst storage speed is HDD.
It may also be worth considering one of the other SSD PCs currently available including the HP 400 G2[plb_3768563_price] which is cheaper.
