Attributes of the HDD
Size of the HDD is also important. Some smaller HDD can only hold up to a couple hundred GB while others can hold up to several TB.
Attributes of the SSD
Shock resistance is the resistance against physical damage against the SSD and is measured in g units. The calculation of the shock resistance involves the science of gravity and acceleration. To be explained simply, a good SSD will have a shock resistance of around 1500g which means it can survive a 6 foot fall and most physical abuse it goes through over the course of it's life.
SSDs are replacing HDDs as the primary storage device that comes with any computer.
