Step 3 – Storage (Laptop)

Next choose the quantity and type of storage devices for your new laptop.

The primary drive is a NVMe solid state drive (SSD), which is significantly faster, smaller, lighter, more energy-efficient and less prone to damage than a mechanical hard drive.


The optional secondary drive is a mechanical hard drive, which offers additional storage capacity at a lower price point at the expense of speed. If both speed and storage capacity are important, you may select one of each type and the OS will be installed onto the SSD while the home directory (your data) will be mounted on the mechanical drive. For custom partitioning and mounting, please contact us after your order and we will accommodate you.


When finished selecting your Storage, proceed to Step 4 – Add-Ons, or complete your purchase by choosing Checkout and reviewing your order.
