With solid-state drive technology, you benefit from load and access times for your files and programs that are faster than those provided by conventional 7200 rpm hard drives. As SSDs have no moving parts, they are also more durable than traditional hard drives and are better protected against damage from drops and bumps. Also, SSDs generally suffer less wear and tear than HDDs due to the lack of contact with any read or write heads.
