Benefits of SSDs in Ultrabooks
The inclusion of a solid-state drive (SSD) is one innovation that allows for the cutting-edge performance of the Ultrabook™. While it may seem like a subtle change, the fact that Ultrabooks rely on SSDs is actually at the heart of many of the devices' benefits.
It begins with boot times. With an SSD, an Ultrabook is able to start up much quicker than traditional notebook computers. That means users will spend less time watching the loading screen and more time getting down to business.
Also, SSD storage directly results in the prolonged battery life of the Ultrabook. Unlike older laptops, the new devices can be used for up to nine hours on a single charge. That gives Ultrabook users a sense of portability they may not otherwise be used to.
Finally, downtime is slashed dramatically with an SSD. Processes such as system updates and antivirus scans can be completed much quicker on a computer relying on an SSD, which can improve performance significantly.
