Hard Disk Drive (HDD) vs Solid State Drive (SSD)

When buying a new computer or new hardware for your PC you may have noticed options of either a HDD or an SSD. But what is the difference between the two?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
A HDD (hard disk drive) contains a platter and a disc, and is essentially very similar to a record player. Data is read, written and overwritten from the disk at very fast speeds, and the disc itself rotates from 5400 to 7200 rpm (revolutions per minute). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In contrast a SSD (solid state drive) has no moving parts and is very similar to a high capacity USB stick. As result of no moving parts, read, writing and overwriting are performed at extremely fast speeds.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So should you get an HDD or and SSD? We would recommend the latter, they may be slightly more expensive but the difference between the two can be compared to night and day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
We are currently offering upgrades from HDD to SSD for only £130, this includes a 480GB SSD, full internal cleanup, transfer of all data and renewal of thermal compound. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
