SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo X1 has an SSD storage medium which is better than the HDD storage medium found on most medium processor core notebook PCs that came out around the same time as it. 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.

This portable PC's storage medium (SSD) is actually the best storage medium amongst all notebook PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

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