Storage is your PC's long-term memory. It's where your files, programs, games and all kinds of content will be saved so you can access them later whenever you want. Today there are two forms of storage: HDD (hard disk drive) and SSD. Dell also offers the option of a hybrid model, where part of the storage is made by SSD and the other part by regular HDD.
