The word ssd stands for solid state drive. Its much faster than a hard drive and in some cases it has less capacity. Someone would usually use it to store programs and windows files in order to have a faster windows start up (boot). This type of drive does not spin its a kind of flash memory that has a chip.
My computer speed is low I need to get a ssd as a primary drive.
