I feel like SSD is one of those things you don't really appreciate unless you own one yourself

SSD is flash storage and has no moving parts whatsoever. As a result, they're smaller. SSD storage is much faster than its HDD equivalent.

Pro's: Speed, form factor, ruggedness, no fragmentation, no noise.

Con's: Price, capacity, availability, short lifespan.

HDD storage is made up of magnetic tape and has mechanical parts inside. They're larger than SSDs and much slower to read and write.

Pro's: Price, capacity, availability, long lifespan.

Con's: Noise, fragmentation, slow, big.

Absolutely SSD, lack of mechanical heads makes it much more powerful and safe. ;-)
