Yes I notice this on my machine with an ssd, a desktop though.
Tell me I assume this machine has no numeric keypad then. I'd rather like one as my older fingers are not as nimble aas they used to be.
Also did you have to deactivate the function keys from being special laptop control keys?
If one can get that in the same way but with 8 gigs of ram it would probably do me, but the lack of a back up drive might be an issue.the one in this desktop is 250 ssd, and I also have a 1tb one for back ups and non urgent files. Its amazing how you notice the speed difference when getting stuff from the old mechanical drive compared to the ssd.
I've had this since 2015, and touch wood nothing has gone wrong. However I am keeping windows 7 for ease of use reasons.

Hi guys!
My HP Stream 11 has a SSD drive, and no fan. I have nothing to hear what so ever. It makes it interesting, because sometimes, it locks, and I can’t tell if it is still on or has it totally turned off LOL! Sometimes, it comes down to holding down the power button a few seconds and then I know I have shut it down. Then, I just tap the power button, and it turns on. Now, when you start the computer, you can turn on Narrator quickly, and it will take you through the start up before JAWS or NVDA starts talking LOL!
It has been an adventure, but this baby only weighs 2 and a half pounds, and has a 128 Gig SSD Drive, and four Gigs of ram. This thing never gets hot, so it does not need a fan LOL!
Take care, guys!

If you have a hybrid laptop, you do not have any sound!

There is no sound from an SSD. The machine will still have a system fan for
the CPU and RAM, however, which you may be able to hear.

How do you know when a pc with and ssd drive is running? If you can't
see it, is there still something you can hear? Both our pcs still have
regular drives so we're curious.
