SSD has been on the market for some years, and increasing numbers of PCs sold have replaced the hard drive with flash-based storage.
It is mostly only benefits to this, they are faster, weighs less, draw less power, can be built smaller, do not make noise, and can withstand a good fall to the ground.
The biggest drawback is the price. You pay simply still much more per GB of storage on an SSD than a hard drive, and that’s the main reason why the hard disk still has a place in many consumer products, and then mainly in the less expensive end of the market.
