A Solid State Drive SSD is a brilliant option for installing your operating system on. Not only is it much more reliable than a traditional hard disk drive and significantly lighter in weight, the increase in speed for loading the operating system and running programs installed on it is astounding. It’s like installing a turbocharger into your computer!
Imagine having your computer booting in a matter of seconds rather than minutes. Everything just works significantly faster. And these days, time is money. You can be far more productive (and less frustrated) when you don’t have to sit around twiddling your thumbs waiting for the computer to load because the poor little hamster running around inside is getting tired!
Of course there is a drawback. The cost per gigabyte for a SSD is more than a traditional HDD. A 120Gb SSD costs around the same as a 2Tb HDD. But in most cases, a 120Gb drive is sufficient to run Windows, Microsoft Office and store current photos and documents. You can use a larger HDD as secondary storage.
Installing a SSD drive into your computer is probably the single best thing you can do to increase its performance. They come with data migration software to move your data and your operating system to the new SSD, giving you a massive increase in speed.
