As you already should know SSD much much faster than traditional hard drives. And if you would like to buy one which should you buy?Firstly thing, you have to figure out how much space you need. Usually these days I would recommend having around 500Gb SSD drive. You will install Windows and most software that you use everyday on SSD and rarely used stuff or stuff that is ok to be slow or just huge stuff on hard drive. If money is big issue, then you can buy 250GB and depending on how often you start computer per day you can install Windows on SSD or hard drive. I would not recommend buy 128GB drive unless money is huge [...Read More]

And very quickly you will realize that one cartridge will cost around [...Read More]
I recently bought new PC and I have few DVD disks with it. From my point of view they are totally useless. Let me explain why.Firstly it is really hard to find DVD drive these days. And there is reason why. DVD disk can at best write little more than 8GB of information. But it does it quite slow and you need special 2 sided disk. They are more expensive and have compatibility issues with other drives. Also they are noisy and they are quite fragile. Sunlight destroys them very quickly, you can easily break or scratch them. Also time ruins them very quickly except special one that designed for longevity and they are expensive. All notebooks that sell [...Read More]
