On the storage side, there is an SSD that competes with the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB while being silent, less energy consuming, more robust and much faster.

In the event that 512 GB would be too tight, it is of course possible to rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution for obtaining fast transfers.
