An SSD has no moving parts unlike a mechanical hard drive. Mechanically an SSD is just a big memory card, while an hard drive has a spinning plate with an moving across it to read and write on the plates. An SSD couldn't care less about being dropped, unless you do something extreme like throwing your Macbook at the ground as hard as you can, in that case you'll have bigger issues than the SSD.
