But to get into a bit more details, I'm trying to figure out if SSD is a better option even though it has 128 GB vs the HDD with 500 GB.
Ummm, did you read our comments above?
you failed to tell us the intended or primary purpose for this computer.
Like Digerati said it depends on what you would be using it for.
From my knowledge, I can tell that HDD contains metal parts like older models, but with SSD, its newer technology so I do not know if it is truly a better blessing in terms of hardware compared to HDD.
And we don't know how to answer that because we don't know how you intend to use this computer. SSDs are faster and "promise" to last many years, but faster does not always mean "better" and only time will tell if they last as long as hard drives - many of which are running strong after 5, 6 or even 10 years. And of course, 128Gb is not very big these days.
