    SSD vs. HDD: What's the Difference?

    This article has a pretty good explanation of the differences and why someone might choose one over the other. Seems like a lot of people wrestle with the decision so this lays it out.

    Advantages and Disadvantages
    Both SSDs and hard drives do the same job: They boot your system, and store your applications and personal files. But each type of storage has its own unique feature set. How do they differ, and why would you want to get one over the other?
