Discussion in 'Computer Information' started by James D Andrews, Mar 20, 2011.

  1. What are the advantages to having a solid state drive? They seem to be the
    latest Cabbage Patch doll of the computer world, but I just don't get why
    everyone wants a drive that is so small (in terms of data, not size).

    0.1 millisecond seek time.

    Imagine the crappy WinXP search algorithm, completing in a reasonable time for once.
    That's where it might come in handy.
