What is an SSD?

Discover everything you need to know about the super speedy SSD.

Life moves fast. And your laptop should be able to keep up. An SSD, or Solid State Drive is built to do just that. Although its primary use is to store your files, they're designed to make everything run quickly. Find out everything you need to know about SSD's and what makes them the perfect storage and speed solution.

Super Speedy Drive

An SSD helps to speed up your laptop's everyday processes. It reads and writes data much faster than a HDD without using as much power. You'll notice a difference when you come to turn your device on, when you load programs and even when you're opening and saving files. You won't know how you managed without one.

Designed for the modern day

Smaller and lighter than other drives, you'll find SSD's in all of the latest ultra-thin laptops, and 2-in-1s. They're also more durable and reliable as they're built with no moving parts. The trouble with moving parts? Simply put, they break easily. That’s the last thing you need when you’re half way through a spreadsheet. Chunkier hard drives may offer more space to save files, but with plenty of free cloud storage available for you to back up your files, it's easy to see why SSD's are dominating.
