6 Laptops with SSD Drives Worth Buying

The days of HDDs are over owing to the emergence of SSDs. Back in the day, the capacity of an HDD is one buying factor, but now, things got changed and HDDs are slowly fading away from the premium laptops market. Buying SSD laptops in India can be a bit tricky since a lot of options are available in both online and offline stores.

However, after a couple of hours long research, I’ve compiled a list of top laptops with SSD (Solid State Drives), which you can buy in India. I hope this list helps you pick the right laptop with SSD!

SSD laptops in India

As the name implies, a solid state drive stores data in chips, unlike the HDD which stores data in discs. An SSD has moving parts and is more reliable than an HDD. Most big SSD manufacturers offer warranty up to 20 years while HDDs can only last for a maximum of 10 years. Read/write speed of SSDs is significantly higher compared to HDDs.

An SSD consumes less power, which also means that it won’t heat up the laptop. However, Solid State Drives are costly, more than double of HDDs. However, the price is worth every penny and it does help improve the¬†performance of a computer remarkably, and that’s one reason why laptop manufacturers use SSDs in their high-end models.

Is SSD laptops really worth the price?

Not only SSD makes a device perform faster, it also makes your data safe, unlike the typical HDDs. Even if your laptop drops on the ground, it will less likely have any impact on the SSD as there are no moving parts in it. If you’re switching from an HDD laptop/computer, you can feel the dramatic changes in performance areas.

Hope this list of SSD laptops helps you choose the right pick.
