SSD Storage Medium

The DELL XPS 13 has a better storage medium than most similar spec notebook PCs that have been around for more than two years. This portable PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most portable PCs of a comparable age and spec to it have an HDD storage medium. Solid State Drives (SSD) store data in semiconductors on a circuit board rather than using magnetic or optical media. Solid State Drives have no moving parts which makes them very fast and reliable.

An SSD storage medium is actually the best storage medium across all medium processor core notebook PCs that were released more than two years ago.

An HDD storage medium is the worst storage medium amongst similar types of portable PC.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other notebook PCs that have an SSD storage media currently available including a cheaper portable PC such as the 13[pl_1304263_price], or the 13[pl_1304263_price] both from DELL or the HP EliteBook 820[plb_2446413_price] or you might consider a better rated portable PC such as the XPS 13[pl_2556381_price], or the XPS 13[pl_2556381_price] both from DELL.
