Yes, this sounds "more real". But it is based on theory completely (in theory rotating disks are much more reliable than in real life). I can read the same in the PR from the manufacturing companies. OK, I would need my pocket calculator too.

Let's discuss this in 2020! Then it might be time for my next (last?) laptop. Then SSDs will have gone through the bathtub curve. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bathtub_curve. More or less practically.



Theory and practice are the same, in theory, but, in practice, they are different.
