High-capacity 1 TB laptops from Lenovo
Nowadays, a laptop storage drive isn't considered truly "large" until it's got 1 TB of space for photos, videos, business and personal documents, and everything else. Small 256 GB drives and mid-size 512 GB ones are still popular, and they work quite well for cloud-focused users who work and play (and save their files) remotely. However, most laptop buyers still put high value on internal storage space. And in today’s world of selfies, streaming and social media, everyone’s got more files to save than ever.
Fortunately, there are lots of options. Lenovo sells laptops with 1 TB storage capacity across most of our laptop brands, from Yoga 2-in-1s to ultraportable Chromebooks to ThinkPad business systems. We offer 1 TB laptops with traditional hard drives (HDDs) as well as 1 TB SSD laptops whose solid state drives deliver far faster data transfer rates. To help you shop, every model on this page is a 1 TB laptop, providing multiple options in terms of price, speed, system weight, and so on.
1 TB laptops: Local storage for all your files
We all store some of our files in the cloud, whether it’s our online bank statements or a shared family photo album. So if we're living in new, cloud-based world, who needs 1 TB of onboard storage? Well, just about everyone. Consider:
- Access: If you don't have a data connection, anything you've stored in the cloud is inaccessible to you.
- Speed: How fast is your Wi-Fi? How many steps to log in? It’s often easier to call up locally stored files.
- Privacy: Local files/copies can't be lost or disclosed in the cloud. (It's still up to you to secure your laptop!)
- Cost: Local storage is always free, with no service fees, and accessing files won't use up your data plan.
Just think of all the things we save – or should be saving, as back-ups -- on our laptops today. When our smartphones fill up, we download our latest selfies and vacation videos. When we do our taxes online, we save the forms and supporting documents. When we reach a new level in a PC game, we save it to lock-in the achievement. Research for school. Family histories. Work projects.
We just keep clicking “Save.” That is, until we run out of storage space. Which is why large-capacity, 1 TB laptops are so popular.
Advantages of a 1 TB SSD laptop
A laptop with a high-capacity solid state drive (SSD) is a great way to maximize storage space, speed, battery life and other critical factors. They’re not as easy to find, and they cost a more than models equipped with HDDs. Still, many power users consider a 1 TB SSD laptop to be an ideal choice.
SSDs use flash memory, so they're much faster and lighter than traditional magnetic hard drives that must spin around to position specific bits of data for the reading arm. Stored data can be accessed almost immediately. Plus, with less spinning and other physical movement required to transfer data, SSD laptops typically consume less battery power than HDD models.
In terms of performance, an SSD laptop’s faster data access speed reduces operating system boot-up times from minutes to seconds. You also get faster file copying, and software programs load more quickly. In addition, experts consider SSDs to be less susceptible to damage and data loss if the laptop is bumped or dropped with too much force.
Still not convinced that a 1 TB SSD laptop is right for you? Check out the models listed on this page. Or if you want the best of both worlds, look for dual-drive models that use a small SSD drive for boot-ups and other operations while also having a traditional HDD to keep files that you need less frequently.
