Hard Drives and SSD's

A hard drive is an old form of technology with moving parts. It stores all the information on a computer such as documents, videos and pictures. It has moving parts so if it is dropped, it could break. Without a hard drive, a computer would not be able to work! An SSD is a modern version of a hard drive, it is smaller and faster as it has no moving parts. Despite the SSD's obvious advantages, it is much more expensive to have in a computer and it will not hold as much information.
