Hard drive

A hard drive is a small rectangular box that is found in computers. It is used to save documents, music ect. It has a disc and a arm. The arm carries the information to the disc using numerics. A hard drive can carry lots of documents a bit mare than an SSD.

SSD (solid state drive)

An SSD is quite a bit like a hard drive, but it does not have any moving parts inside. It does not hold as much as a hard drive but is much more handy . It is used in thing like Ipads so they are not bulky.
