We will concentrate on the type of storage that is installed into notebook PCs this time, and implement its functionality and usability. Recently, the number of SSD-equipped notebook PCs that support a “PCI Express” ultra-high-speed interface and can share files at high speed is growing.
SSD-equipped versions for low-priced notebook PCs are growing.
Presently, most notebook PCs have built-in HDDs or SSDs. Next, let’s explain these devices’ characteristics.
HDD is an abbreviation for Hard Disk Drive and has a small disk inside which acts as a medium for recording. This disk rotates at a high speed of 5400 to 7200 revolutions per minute while the HDD is running. Then the information from the file is written and read using the magnetic material added to the disk surface and a small read/write head.
The benefit of using HDD is that at a cheap price, you can use a vast amount of room. For eg, the price of a 2TB 2.5-inch HDD is 76.77 U.S. dollars when considering the internal capacity of notebook PCs (tax included, same below). However, also for low-priced models, SSDs cost 287.88 United States dollars and 479.80 United States dollars for high-performance models.
It is also found in affordable A4 size notebook PCs used in offices and residences, and regular company notebook PCs due to these characteristics. The HDD-equipped model is ideal if you want to handle a vast volume of image data, video data, music files, etc. taken with a digital camera using a single notebook PC.
