On the storage side, there is a quiet SSD but also more stable, less energy consuming and faster.
As a result, an SSD clearly increases responsiveness and fluidity on a daily basis compared to a simple hard drive, implying, for example, faster start/stop and application launch.

With its 512 GB, the SSD offers a capacity in line with the standard of hard drives. But of course if you need more space, you can use an external storage unit such as a USB-C / USB 3.0 device to take advantage of the fast transfer.

As for the autonomy of this computer, which is certainly good but not the easiest to carry due to its weight and especially its large format, expect around 4 hours of battery operation in light use. It should be noted, however, that a 17 inch is particularly comfortable for primarily seated use (eg at home).
