IPad storage gripes unfair? (re: solid state drive)
When solid state drives wander into my view, they always boast near-instant boot-up and fess-up to limited storage.
Is it unfair to judge the 64 GB local storage limits of the iPad, considering the fact that we can boot, from scratch, in 10 - 15 seconds or restarting in under 30 seconds? The more I think about it, the more UNfair I think it is to compare the iPad's storage to that of a laptop with a mechanical hard drive.
Instead, I think we ought to compare it to laptops with solid state drives. They are rare, in my circles, and very expensive if you want the higher capacity storage options.
I don't claim to be an expert on such things, though. Maybe laptops with ssd's carry much more than 64 GB for, around $800?
