Does anyone here currently use SSDs for anything?

Re: do you use SSD?

I have a few cheap $200 laptops with small 16 GB and 32 GB SSDs. They have faster read and write times than my older hard drives.

The 32GB SSD laptop runs Windows 10 Home 64bit, and the 16GB laptops run Chrome OS.

Re: do you use SSD?

Wouldn't the OS take up the entire storage?

It took out most of the 32GB of space after installing all the Windows Update, and a few programs like web browsers, media players, and word processors.

stands to reason you won't have room for future updates?

Possibly, I may not have enough space for future updates if Microsoft decide to release a big update with a larger file size in the future.

There is a chance that Windows 10 will not have a huge update in the future, so more people with less free disk space can continue to use Windows 10 because it can still fit on cheaper computers with 32GB of storage after installing updates for Windows.

There are millions of cheap people, poor people, older adults and young kids who use Windows 10 computers with only 32GB of space because they cant afford a better computer, or only need a basic computer for Word Processing. watching online videos, e-mail, web browsing, and other basic tasks.

I think Microsoft don't want many 32GB computer users to replace Windows 10 with a lightweight Linux operating system on their cheap 32GB computer because Windows 10 can no longer fit on their PC with only 32GB of space because of future updates which are many GBs in size.

Many PC users in rural towns and poorer places still use slower internet service like dial-up, so huge updates with big file sizes like 1GB in size will take hours to download for PC users with slower internet service like dial-up.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft has a huge update planned for their fall update.

Re: do you use SSD?

I read on a few tech blog that the next fall Windows update will mainly include updates to fix software problems/bugs, improve performance, and security updates.

The next Windows update may make Windows 10 file size smaller in size to improve performance on slower mechanical hard drives with less than 20% free space which can cause problems with disk defrag because some disk defrag programs need 20% free space to work properly.
