On the storage side, there’s an SSD, which clearly improves responsiveness and fluidity on a day-to-day basis compared to a simple hard drive.
Because an SSD is much faster. As a bonus, it offers other benefits as it uses less energy, is more robust and silent.
Nevertheless, in practice, the SSD in particular guarantees start/stop and launch of applications much faster than a hard disk.
Its modest capacity of 256GB is capable of holding light and/or few files/software. That’s half of what standard hard drives offer.
But if you need more space, you can use an external storage device. Favoring a USB-C / USB 3.0 device then represents an interesting possibility to achieve fast transfers.
Regarding the autonomy of this mobile computer, whose transport is facilitated by the contained weight and finesse, you should expect approximately 6 hours of battery life with light use.
