When considering SSD it's not only on speed performance but also other factors such as data recovery ability, chipset quality etc. etc.
And on business grade laptops only the better (if not the best) solutions should be considered
The 7200rpm 500GB standard on most Thinkpads is already more than enough for general use
If SSD is to be considered I'll only stick to enterprise grade ones...
Which is why my next Thinkpad purchase will have the 500GB
No, not all Thinkpads have both 2.5" SATA and m.2 slots
On those with those, you can configure C: on m.2 and data volume on SATA 2.5"
But if only SATA 2.5" is available I'd rather run standard HDD on it
After all, it's designed for traditional HDD and has a 9.5mm clearance, would rather use up that space rather than using 7mm SSD with rubber spacer
信得過既SSD? Too early to tell
People die for it becuz they think speed performance is important above anything else
Wait till those SSDs die and those users will have a hard time salvaging data from them, should that happen
Until one day I find it comfortable or confident to manage an SSD (C:drive that is) like traditional HDD, I will NOT stick to SSD, just in case
