    What is a SSD drive, and what does SSD stand for?

    Are you the same person that started the "what is a Mac Mini" and "what is an Ipod" threads?

    An SSD is an alternative/the future to a hard drive. It is flash based with no spinning parts. It is way faster than a traditional hard drive, but way too expensive at the moment. SSD stands for Solid State Drive.

    Or to simplify it giant SD card instead of the old fashion harddrive that's standard in computers right now.

    Thanks, and no, I'm not the person that started those threads.

    See my reply in the other thread on SSD's where you asked the same thing.
