Talking about SSDs reminded me that not everyone has read this.
Everyone: read this.
It’s insanely long. You’ll need a lot of time. (If only there was a tool to help you read things later when you have time. (Hint: Print view.))
But it’s important to understand, if you’re buying an SSD, how it’s likely to perform, how the performance will degrade over time, why the Intel X25-M costs a bit more than most others, and why the difference is worth every penny.
