Are looking to upgrade to a new Laptop, this is the best time to consider a Laptop with SSD memory. Since the arrival of SSD Drive, the HDD memory has been losing its importance because of its slow read, right, index speed compared to SSD. SSD is future. Therefore, SSD is the safest memory type for your brand new notebook if speed matters to you.
Since the SSD memory is in its earlier stage of being mass adopted, it is costly compared to HDD. The price of an SSD memory is almost double than an HDD memory of the same size. Still, while buying a new laptop, the right wisdom says to uncheck the laptops have only HDD storage onboard.
If your concern is about the size of SSD storage, here is the solution. See, the size of material memory wouldn't matter much in coming days. The reason would be cloud computing which could facilitate securely storing data in the cloud and retrieve it as and when needed and at whichever device you wish to. I am using Google Cloud. It is very user-friendly and secure. Thanks to the free 20GB cloud storage which all Android users get I am not worried about hardware and software failure of my smartphone. Once you get used to, you would prefer to have your data in the cloud only, not on the physical memory of your laptop or mobile, which have higher chances of stop working suddenly.

Your next laptop would at least — last for three to four years. So plan according to — what is going to be a trend in the coming years. Spending forty or fifty thousand for a brand new laptop looking at what is best in today's time wouldn't help you to race ahead than others. Planning according to present is not the mantra of success in life. Plan according to what would be best in the future and upgrade yourself before the time.
Thus, 128GB or 160GB SSD memory in a laptop is sufficient. If you have a high volume of data, buy Google's cloud storage, which is available at penny rate and store there safely. Or else, buy a 1TB HDD and store there. However, your next laptop should boot on an SSD. Make it this your obligation while purchasing a new notebook.
Considering price and low memory, laptops with SSD may not be fit for family use. Since Bharat is moving towards digitization, every home must have a computer to access government services in no time. A Laptop at home is often best for such limited requirement. But a laptop with SSD may not serve the need of the home users. They should buy a conventional notebook from best laptop brands like HP, Acer, and Asus.

That is why I bought a laptop with SSD memory with Asus brand logo imprint on it last week. Now is your turn to switch to SSD and ditch HDD.

The Acer laptop makes the fullest use of its SSD memory by its powerful CPU. The CPU of this portable computer packs the best hardware. Intel i3 Processor is a highly reliable processor, and 9 out of 10 notebook users would agree, this processor ensures fluid performance.

Moreover, the screen of this notebook, although not touch friendly, but is an IPS display with full HD resolution.
Connectivity Options with this Acer Laptop
Connectivity features of this Acer notebook are somewhat standard. It possesses only those specs which a laptop must have — but that excludes optical drive. Therefore, if a CD/DVD RW drive is a must for your work, which is often not the case, then this is not the laptop model to consider. Lacking optical driver is not much of an issue. None of my computer and notebook has a CD-DVD RW drive. Some of you may see it as a cost-cutting or maximizing profit exercise by Acer, but it is primarily to reduce the weight of this laptop variant.
An optical driver or CD/DVD ROM often adds not less 700 grams weight to the gross weight of a laptop. So you need to carry 700 grams of extra hardware set, which has almost no use in today's time. This notebook with SSD can connect to the internet and other resourceful devices using its connectivity ports. Then what is the inference to carry a hardware set which is limited to just reading and writing CD and DVD? By the way, like the floppy drive, CD and DVD is also now a story of past in the history of digital memory.
Battery Backup of this Laptop with SSD memory
The beauty of SSD memory is not only limited to working speed of a laptop, but it is also meant to conserve power. This Acer laptop has the same 4-Cell battery, yet it can power up the portable computer much longer than it does on a Laptop with an HDD. The reason is — accessing to data on an SSD memory requires far lesser power than doing the same on an HDD. Why is that so?

Conclusion: The Lenovo Ideapad IP 520S has two variants in the market: one with 128GB SSD and another with 256GB SSD storage. Both the models have the same set of hardware and software specifications. The only noticeable difference is the size of SSD they possess.
Summing up what has been discussed so far about this Lenovo Laptop. Going by the specs, unquestionably it is a mind-blowing laptop meant to be an ultimate choice for developers, gamers, and professionals. However, the keyboard of this notebook is not typing-friendly. In 60000 Rupees notebook, Lenovo provided such fragile keyboard is just unbelievable. If typing is your passion, you wouldn't like working on this Lappy. Moreover, the quality of keypad does not look they would remain actionable very long.
