    I currently use a laptop with a 1TB SATA HDD, and have been noticing lots of speed defects with the laptop, along with a couple other issues that have led me to decide to go purchase a new laptop. I have my eye on one that has a PCIe NVMe SSD. Upon looking it up on Google, this tends to be the better option when looking for speed while sacrificing storage (I prefer speed over storage space as I don’t need much storage). Now, excluding the storage size and speed of the drive itself, what other things would I expect from using an SSD instead of a HDD? Will updates, Windows, and most apps all work the same way? Like, Microsoft Excel - there’s a difference between Windows and Macintosh, but there shouldn’t be a difference between a Windows HDD and a Windows SSD, correct? Last question: what do you prefer? Thanks in advance
