From Higher Computing Science
- Built-in storage devices, also known as internal storage devices, are backing storage devices found within a computer.
- The most common forms of built-in storage devices are hard drives and solid state devices.
- Portable computing devices are more likely to use solid state devices, because they aren't affected by movement and use less power than hard drives.
- Laptops, desktops and servers are more likely to use hard drives, because large amounts of storage are cheaper.
