Storage:

SATA

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.

            This product was very helpful in speeding up my Mac. No instructions were included but was still very easy to install and had no problems. The pc scanner that you have the option to install was very nice and easy to use. I would definetely recommend this site to any one even if they are computer illiterate.

                  Crucial makes it easy to shop for the right module and easy to install with their instructional videos. My only gripe is that I waited so long to upgrade my laptop. My Bad!
