HDD is a traditional storage drive which stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are slower than other forms of storage such as solid state drives (SSD) and flash drives.

There are a number of other laptops that have an HDD storage media currently available that you might want to consider including the EliteBook 740, or the EliteBook 840 both from HP which is cheaper.

If this notebook PC processor clock speed is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the Lenovo ThinkPad X240 (1.8GHz), or the DELL Latitude 12 7000 (2GHz) which is also cheaper.

I love the pro book series. Solid construction, made to last, great performance and tend to last many years
It has driverhardware problems
The more recent Bios update and the latest drivers from HP plus the latest drivers from Intel for Bluetooth and Wifi. Then disable power management on the Bluetooth and Wifi will make Windows 8.1 run
Let's just say I gave up on Windows 7
There are no cons
Only downside is the screen has a reflective finish so if you are on in a well lit room you can sometimes see yourself. Not the biggest concern but more of a warning to those that don't like this
