Though its a hardware question but as I only use Linux I would like some one to suggest how this relates to the Linux environment.
These days I see many cheap laptops coming with solid state hdd. They are of two kinds eMMC and SSD.
Most of the articles I have come across talk about the speed difference or power consumption. I think a person who is buying a cheap laptop is not having these as the first preference. But definitely the life span of the HDD is surely an important issue. In case of Linux’s HDD usage I would like to know which kind of HDD lasts longer ? SSD or eMMC ?
