In terms of storage, there is an SSD that matches the standard of hard drives in terms of capacity with its 512 GB.
If you need more space, you can rely on an external storage device. Choosing a USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting solution to take advantage of fast transfers.
In any case, an SSD offers several advantages compared to a simple hard drive: greater robustness, lower energy consumption, silent operation or even greater speed.
In practice, the SSD guarantees much better responsiveness and fluid use than a simple hard disk, which in particular implies much faster start/stop and launch of applications.
In terms of autonomy, bet on around 5 hours of battery life with light use for this mobile computer that can be transported as easily as an Ultrabook thanks to its finesse and contained weight.
