SSD Storage Medium

The Lenovo X1 Carbon has a better storage medium than most medium processor core notebook PCs that have been around for around the same time as it. This notebook PC has an SSD storage medium, whereas most medium processor core notebook PCs that were released one year ago have an HDD storage medium.
