Performance Showdown - SSDs vs. HDDs

Humba Re:Power Consumption (259 comments)

Power consumption is indeed better, but the hard disk accounts for only about 5% of the laptop power budget, so the changes don't significantly impact the run time. What is interesting (on the Lenovo x300 I've been using) is that the faster disk helps offset the slower, low-voltage processor. The low-voltage processor does help run time.
