HDD vs SSD: an easy choice?
On paper, many choices seem initially clear. A sports car seems to offer significantly more performance on paper than a run-of-the-mill vehicle. But its shortcomings become clear once it is time to take the kids to school, bring home the shopping from the supermarket, or collect furniture from the local store. And, for most of us, the choice is one or the other, not purchasing both so that the limitations of one can be offset by the other when re...
