    Yes, if you are looking for storage capacity (in other words, space for data) just look at the number with the GB. Unless it is very close (say 630 vs. 640GB) the bigger numbers mean more space.

    SSDs are, simply put, based on chips while the HDDs are the magnetic equivalent of record players - there are spinning disks inside, and a read-write head. Each time you want to read some data, it has to wait for the disks to spin until the data are at the head, while the SSD is a block of chips, which just accesses the data electronically and is therefore much faster.

    SSDs are usually used for the OS or other data which are used frequently, because they access the data that fast. Once you read large files (say, a video or a large photo) the HDD can keep up - there wont be any further wait if the file is not fragmented. But if many small files must be read, as is the case when booting, no HDD can beat SSDs.

    Hope that helps.
