[title] Solid State drives
[* icon_note] If you are dealing with a fairly recent system this is highly advised. '''While this is a very worthwhile upgrade, not everyone can afford one or you may not want one.''' Additional steps to enable TRIM will have to be performed that are not covered in this guide due to being distro neutral and only touching on hardware.
[* black] '''16-64GB:''' You will not see these produced by the main companies producing SSD's anymore, being redundant with how cheap 128GB SSD's are now. However, you will still find these from previous years of production and the generic SSD's like Transcend. However, the primary players no longer manufacture these.
[* black] '''128GB:''' While these are still viable for light users who rely on the cloud for part of their storage, they are the smallest potentially viable size you can go for. If you can afford to get a 256GB class or 256GB SSD, that will be the way to go, because a 256GB drive will not be much more money in comparison to a 128GB SSD.
[* black] '''256GB:''' These are the current best value size you can get for the money, at least right now. These are going to be small, but if you manage the space correctly you will not have as much of a problem as you will have with 128GB SSD's.
[* black] '''512GB-1TB:''' These are the largest drives you have as a consumer right now but they aren't the best value for price per GB, and probably won't for a while. If you are considering this, you'd be better served with a 256GB SSD and a 1TB data drive setup, until the cost of a 1TB SSD drops to an acceptable price per GB.
[* black] '''2TB+''' 2TB drives are only a recent thing on the consumer, and have been traditionally limited to the enterprise sector. Due to being very recent, these drives are very expensive. It's in your best interest for the prices to drop to a price point that's sane.
