    How to tell if the Hard Drive is SSD or HDD in Windows 10

  2. Confused about hard drives: HDD and SSD

    Browsing through the Microsoft Store for a new pc, I see various hard drives listed, such as:

    16GB eMMC

    32GB eMMC

    500GB 5400 RPM HDD

    2GB DDR3L 1600 MHz

    32GB SSD [?]

    64GB SSD

    I understand that solid state drives are good, though expensive. What I don't understand is what size of an SSD would be the equivalent of, say, a terabyte HD? It seems that 64GB is the largest SSD offered here. What size HDD would equal that capacity?

    And, BTW, what is an eMMC?
