I clicked on the link provided in your message below and listened to the full article about emmc and ssd drives.
Emmc sounds like the kind of thing you’d find in a kindle reader.
What kind of drive is now faster than an s s d drive??

Rather then trying to explain it, I’ll trust the good folks at How-To Geek
Tell us what an eMMC drive is and why it should be avoided.
However, she should be sure not to get one with an eMMC drive.
Some but not all laptops let you upgrade the storage and ram options later.
I’m going to assume you’d rather not open it up at any point
Do you want us to suggest some actual laptops for you?
A great k keyboard typing experience is a m must I’d presume.
A solid state drive has no moving parts. So, unlike the standard hard drives,
---there are no moving parts.
---they do not overheat.
---they use less energy and last longer.
These days, they are quite affordable.
Also, most new laptops now come with a solid state drive by default.
…and they are faster than the traditional mechanical drive.
Good brand names are Kingston, crucial, Samsung, etc..
I would not purchase a new p c or laptop without a solid state drive.
You wrote that you will not be moving/carrying your laptop from place to place, so you can get one that may be a little heavier than a very lightweight one.
Laptops with a numeric keypad are a little bigger than those without.
I am a little dumb in this area what is considered a solid-state drive question do you like a certain brand other than another brand question
