Thought on my first SSD upgrade 

 

You forgot the pro for no moving parts which works great in a Laptop. That's all I use in laptops ... well that and in every computer I own.

Just one on my desktop but love it so much that I want to get one for my old laptop, inject some new life into it. If anyone is on the fence about buying one, go for it! They're simply amazing. Going back to a platter disk even on a fast-ish computer hurts now :D

I happily own 2 SSD's in my Desktop, both rMBP's are SSD's and my new HTPC / SteamBox will be SSD. I also have 2 SSD's that were retired into external drives.

 

SSD is the only way going forward, ill have spinning rust for data I don't give a ###### about

That's why every machine that comes into my office feels slow.

I have two at home.

One in the desktop OCZ Vertex 2e as a 120GB OS drive.

One in my laptop (Dell XPS 15) that is a 512GB.

 

I use a regular hard drive at work and as i've been with an SSD for over 4 years now.

Doing stuff on a regular drive is so slow. I moan about it all the time.

Takes about 30 seconds to load Photoshop CC.

On the laptop it took about 3-5 seconds. :laugh:

Refuse to use a PC without an SSD as the system drive.
