SSD with Intel Atom

I'm just wondering if it is worth putting a SSD into an Intel Atom based computer. Will it increase the response of the Operating system and its programs. Or will the Atom prossecsor slow it down?

  1. I don't care how slow a processor is, I/O to a physical device is an order of magnitude slower. as a SSD is significantly faster than a HDD, I think that it couldn't help but speed up the ATOM response.
  2. ok so when i get the money i'll try an ssd.
  3. You should also consider getting more RAM or making a RAID0 array to give you more performance as well. SSD's are quite expensive at the moment, so a RAM upgrade/RAID config will give you a performance boost for cheap.

    I would never recommend RAID0. Yes it does improve performance, but it also doubles your chances of a disk failure, :ouch: and if you lose one drive in the array, you have just lost ALL the data on the array! :cry:

    The risks are just not worth it to me. :pfff:
  5. guys it's my netbook mini form HP. So it dose not have an extra HDD slot for raid. I just wanted to know if it is worth it to put a SSD into an Atom based netbook.

    Considering how slow most netbook HDDs are, I think a SSD would really shine in that application. ;)
  7. It would not hurt. I think it would be a waste of money and time for a little proformance upgrade. The amount of money it would cost to do that would almsot be as much as a new netbook. No its NOT worth it!
