Windows, Apple and all systems for that matter will boot faster as-well as being more responsive performing everyday tasks, even gaming! Gone are the times when you’re waiting for things to load, with an SSD, things are pretty instant. Don’t just take out word for it, watch the video below by Asus comparing two identical laptops with a standard hard drive and a solid state drive.
