Is your computer taking an age to start up?

Published June 08, 2016 by IT@Hand in Memory and Storage

Is your computer taking an age to start up?

Do you find yourself grabbing a coffee while your computer does its ‘thing’? Well it’s probably because it has your traditional slow Hard disk drive (HDD) in it.

There’s been a gradual but changing landscape in personal data storage over the last few years, and its name is Solid-state drive (SSD). SSDs are faster, smaller, more reliable and more durable. So you might ask yourself, why didn’t one come with my computer? Well in the past it came down to cost vs capacity, but that has changed. Every year as the technology that creates these SSDs improves, the costs come down and the capacity improves. This year it’s coming to a head and everyone is ditching the traditional HDDs and going to SSDs. Now the only down side is, how will you find the time to grab a coffee?
