About Laptop SSD

With its Core i7 processor, 8 GB RAM, and 2 GB NVIDIA GPU, you were convinced your new laptop would be blazing fast. But then it stuttered and slowed down as soon as you opened more than four windows, and you immediately regretted not getting a laptop SSD. An SSD, or solid state drive, is a data storage device like hard disk drives, but, unlike the latter, it has no moving mechanical parts and it is more resistant to physical shock and stress. Because it has no spinning disks, a laptop SSD drive runs silently and is faster, too. However, it is costlier than a hard disk drive and has a lower capacity. This is why you chose a 1 TB hard disk drive spinning at 5,400 rpm over a much faster SSD with a meager 128 GB capacity. However, you can have the speed of an SSD and the capacity of a hard disk drive if you choose a laptop hybrid SSD. The hybrid drive hosts your laptop's operating system and essential programs on its SSD while leaving the much bigger hard disk drive for storing files. With the wide selection of PC parts and accessories available on eBay, you can find the right laptop SSD to make your powerful computer run at its full potential.
