Many of our clients ask us why we always quote for Laptops and PCs that have SSD storage as opposed to the original HDD storage. The initial assumption may be that we have made a mistake and that we are unnecessarily quoting products that are more expensive – however, we assure you that this is most definitely not the case.
The standard HDD (hard disk drive) has been the predominant storage device for computers (both desktops and laptops) for a long time. The main draw is the high storage capacity and low cost.
