Storage Drives -- hard drives and solid state drives -- are the permanent memory for the programs and documents on your computer.

Data Transfer Rate is the rate at which data can be sent or received. This is determined by your motherboard. A drive with a higher transfer rate will only run at the rate of the motherboard's transfer rate.

Cache is a type of working memory that allows the drive to perform faster.

RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

    Comments about Crucial 1GB Upgrade for a Apple iMac 2.80GHz Intel Core 2 Extreme (24-inch) System:

    After returning the original order of two sets of 1GB SD RAM, I got the 4 GB (Two sets of 2 GB SDRM modules) and installed them. The computer's ram makes my multi-tasking much faster as software program open and close without a long delay. The primary reason for the upgrade is to meet basic requirements for future needed software for my system (Including LION OSX).
