On the storage side, there is a silent SSD but also less energy-demanding than a hard drive, more robust and much faster.
Specifically, thanks to the SSD, we achieve a much better fluidity and responsiveness in use, which for example implies much faster start/stop and launch of software, or even a faster arrival on the cards in online games.

It’s a 256GB SSD on offer here, a capacity less than half of what standard hard drives offer. It is clear that we can accommodate software / light files and / or few. If you need more space, you can of course use an external storage device such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of fast transfers.

Regarding the autonomy of this versatile Ultrabook, whose transport is facilitated by the controlled weight and finesse, bet on around 7 hours of battery with light use.
