Most Apple laptops (and some desktops) now come with a “flash drive,” otherwise known as a solid state drive.

A solid state drive (SSD) is where all of your files are stored on your Mac. You might also call it a hard drive. But unlike the old hard drives that have a spinning disk, a solid state drive has no moving mechanical parts. This means that SSDs are more resistant to shock, run quieter, and transfer data more quickly.

The first time you use a Mac with a SSD, you’ll notice the difference in speed – especially if you’re using a lot of different programs, or switching between programs often.
