I believe SATA SSD was mentioned in the review, but that should be SATA HDD.
Overall a very unrefined notebook with too many flaws. HP shouldn't even have released this until they have fixed the drivers or compatibility with Microsoft. But I am seeing this trend with notebook equipped with AMD APU receive zero R&D for the big system builders.
Also the AMD APU's are really stretching their legs on a inefficient design. In my humble opinion you can leave the AMD notebooks in the shelves until the AMD Raven Ridge APU based on Zen arrives. Then it will be interesting to see how they stack up against Intel's mobile CPU counterpart.
