This was a great 5 year comparison Ari.  To think that SSDs have become so affordable is amazing.  In fact storage and memory to me are the two best reasons to build your own PC as prebuilts still charge a fortune to upgrade those components.

Glad you liked the article.

The amazing thing is that SSDs have been around this long (they were totally mainstream in 2014), and yet OEMS are still equipping their PCs with hard drives as the only storage. It's simply absurd.
