Best Laptops with 1TB HDD in the Philippines 2019

Ten years ago, opting for a laptop with a whopping 1TB HDD was an overkill, if not a mundane hunt.

Back then, hardly any brand made laptops that boasted 1TB of HDD, but today, with the introduction of 4K videos and larger-than-life megapixels in smartphones and DSLRs, the phrase "media file" has gone under some tremendous changes, modifications that you could directly feel from all the marketing ploys these firms have now come up with.

As such, the best laptops nowadays couldn't be called as such if they're not equipped with a 1TB HDD. And whether that feature simply gives you an extra needed space or that confidence you can brag about when that time comes, such specification can come in very handy especially if you're a self-confessed media junkie.

The list below aims to narrow down your selection on the best laptops with 1TB HDD in the Philippines in 2019. Scroll down to find out if your intended variant makes it on our list:

1. Lenovo IdeaPad 320 14ISK

The redesigned Lenovo IdeaPad 320 is developed to cater to a single promise, that is to simplify your life. It can handle any task without hiccups, all thanks to its robustly-made processor and discrete graphics options. And as it's preloaded with Windows 10 Home, the personal assistance of Cortana is just an icing on the cake, may your inquiries be typed or spoken.

The Lenovo IdeaPad 320 14ISK is powered to up to 7th generation Gen Tel Core i3 processor along with up to 4GB DDR4 memory, both of which guarantee ultra-fast responsiveness and a performance that you can be proud of. Perhaps the biggest hurdle that comes with it is that you'll have to choose the best color that fits your lifestyle. And whether its Platinum Grey, Onyx Black, Blizzard White, or Denim Blue, they all boil down to a performance you can count on the moment you open it until you finish your project.
