• Road warriors: People who shove their laptops into their bags indiscriminately will want the extra security of an SSD. That laptop may not be fully asleep when you violently shut it to catch your next flight. This also includes folks who work in the field, like utility workers and university researchers.
• Speed demons: If you need things done now, spend the extra bucks for quick boot-ups and app launches. Supplement with a storage SSD or hard drive if you need extra space (see below).
• Graphic arts and engineering professionals: Yes, we know we said they need hard drives, but the speed of an SSD may make the difference between completing two proposals for your client and completing five. These users are prime candidates for dual-drive systems (more on that below).
• Audio engineers and musicians: If you're recording music, you don't want the scratchy sound from a hard drive intruding. Go for quieter SSDs.
As for Rurik, the story of three brothers is a common motif so it is most likely a fabrication. It could be that Rurik did exist (brothers not) and the “invitation” was there to explain the fait compli, a subjugation after some power struggle. However, the article is inaccurate to the extent it talks of the slavs as inviting the Rus. Novgorod was not Slavic as this stage but the chronic talks of Slavic and Finnic tribes inviting the Rus. Genetically, Rurik has been confirmed to be N1c in his Y-DNA, based on tests done on apparent male descendants of Rurik (Russian princes). N1c is of course common in Finland and the particular sub-clade if Rurik is found in Finland in several places. Even though THE closest Scandinavian descendant in Y-Line for Rurik is at the moment found in Sweden, there is no way to say where did Rurik come from. Was he a descendant of a Finnic person that had scandinavized at some point? There was Finnic immigration to Sweden to Birka area in Viking Age. Was he from the Åland island, an island originally inhabited by the Finns but Scandinavian in the Viknig Age. This island was heavily depopulated in the Viking Age, maybe fitting to the narrative that Rurik took all his relatives to Ladoga. He could even have been from today’s Finland, there was lot’s of Finnish immigration to Uppland after the Black Death which could explain the presence of Rurik’s descendant in modern Sweden.
