Difference between volatile & Nonvolatile memory
volatile needs power (RAM), non volatile ca store without power, (Hard disk/drive)

What Is SDD
What is IGC and do you want it?
integrated graphics card, not as good as a DGC or dedicated graphics card which can speed up different computer games
How is the speed of a harddrive measured
RPMs you want higher rpms
What is MTBF
