Storage and USB Performance
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Read
It’s quite peculiar to receive a system without an SSD because small capacity boot drives are relatively cheap. In the modern era, consumers are accustomed to the quick response and silent operation of solid state drives. The bundled mechanical disk manages to achieve a good read rate, and USB 3.0 performance is very competitive.
CrystalDiskMark – Sequential Write
The HDD write speed is within an expected range but it lingers behind some of the most expensive alternatives. This isn’t a cause for concern, and shouldn’t impede the overall user-experience.
