For that use, just get a regular 2.5" SATA III SSD.
The Crucial MX500 or Samsung 860 EVO, in whatever size your budget can handle.

HP 690-0067c Desktop PC
MB is Sunflower SSID 8433
I just use it to cruz the Web, e mail and some work with videos & pictures, nothing heavy. I want to put the SSD in place to replace the old style 7200 rpm H/D that came with the pc.
