Default SSDs make computers go ZOOM

"That video card was the most important PC upgrade I ever made, sparking a total change in my perception of what computers could do. I didn't think I would ever again experience something as significant as that one single upgrade—until the first time I booted up a laptop with a solid-state drive (SSD) in it. Much like that first glimpse of a texture-mapped MechWarrior 2, that first fast boot signaled a sea change in how I thought and felt about computers."

A long, long time ago, one way you could make your computer run extremely fast was the use of a RAM drive.  No more waiting for a pudgy floppy drive to sing its song for you to write up a document in Wordstar.  Nowadays, there are much more practical solutions such as SSDs which zip along at speeds that traditional hard drives can only dream of.  Ever wonder how SSDs achieve those speeds?  Ars Technica has a great article that goes into practical detail about how these speed boosters work.  It is amazing just how much technology is packed into these devices, and if your computer is acting like you are without your morning coffee, an SSD upgrade may be just what you need.
