Question: Difference between Serial ATA Drive and Solid State Drive
I need to buy a MacBook Pro for work. Does anyone know what the difference is between the standard Serial ATA Drive and the more expensive Solid State Drive? It seems to me that the Solid State Drives are smaller, so I'm wondering why they cost more.
I'd like to choose the 750GB Serial ATA Drive @ 7200 rpm due to it's capacity and speed, but I'm not sure what the advantage would be to purchase the $450 upgrade to the 256GB Solid State Drive.
Can someone help me?
