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.

    I bought this and my machine immediately started to crash at random moments. I replaced this component with Apple certified memory and it fixed the problem. Don't be lured in by the cheap price....Read complete review

                              I was hoping I would notice a big difference by adding a gig of memory to my existing gig. I only a noticed a little difference. Still glad I bought it. My Final Cut runs much smoother now.
