Question

Windows installed in SSD or HDD?

I wanted to know if Windows is installed in the SSD or the HDD.
I know it should be installed in the SSD so it works much faster, but just to be sure.

Consumer Reports rates this model a best buy. But not all models perform the same, and they don't give all models the same rating.

They all refer to mobile computing devices. Notebook and laptop are used interchangeably and refer to a normal notebook computer. A netbook is a smaller screened version of a notebook and an Ultrabook is a slim and light notebook.

This Ultrabook features an Acer PowerSmart long-life battery. The battery will hold up to 80% of its original capacity after as many as 1,000 recharges. A full recharge comprises a complete charge-and-discharge cycle, and does not always occur each time the notebook is plugged in to a power source, as several partial charges can add up to a full recharge.

Question

Battery and fan

How long will the battery last and is the fan speed loud? I have an HP Envy and the fan is constantly on full blast for no reason, making it extremely noticeable.

This model features an Acer PowerSmart long-life battery, supporting up to 1,000 charge cycles. The battery run time is 8 hours.

The fan in this model shouldn't be very noticeable under normal usage.
