    ssd = solid state drive

    this differs from a hdd (hard disk drive) as there are no rotating platters and is alot faster in read/write speeds

    Google is your friend. A Solid-State Drive is a drive with no moving parts, which is much faster than spinning hard drives.

    An SSD is basically a big flash drive, super quick, very expensive, but so much better.
