A portable SSD is already a better way to carry gigs of valuable data. The lack of moving parts means there’s less chance of the drive dying if it gets jostled, banged, or accidentally dropped.

Everybody's MacBook breaks. At some point or another, the hard drive will shudder to a stop; the display hinge won't hold up anymore; the logic board will cease to function. It's only a matter of time. Fortunately, you can fix most of it yourself. Here's how.

If you think your SSD is speedy, think again: this new Samsung SSD is capable of reading data at a frankly obscene 3000MB/s.
