Solid State Drives are More Affordable

June 11, 2014

Solid state drives (SSD) have come down in price and their use is gaining momentum.  Although they are not yet as cheap as traditional drives, they are worth the cost, especially in laptops.  Not only do you gain performance in access the drive, but solid state components use considerably less power than a traditional spinning disk, saving on your laptop’s battery life.

Traditional hard drives contain a metal disc that spins around very fast and an arm that reads & writes data to and from the disk.  The precision demanded with this operation makes them the most likely part on any computer to go bad.  If you are looking for something to upgrade on your laptop, consider replacing your hard drive with a solid state drive.
