Buying new computer

Susan
I have the choice of buying a refurbished Solid State Drive
HP computer or a Lenovo Intel Core i3 new computer.

Will a Solid State Drive make a big difference in the sensitivities
to the computer.  If so I will buy the refurbished one.  If not,
I will buy the new one.

These are the computers that are in my price range.

Thanks so much,
Susan

You can always put a solid state in a new computer after you buy it, that's what I do.
Is it laptop or desktop?
If it's a laptop, the fan itself will make a magntic field that could equal to that of the hard drive.
Most laptop fans stay on most of the time.  My Lenovo laptop has solid state, but still has a huge magnetic field around the touchpad for some unknown reason. So, nobody can say for sure which one is better, unless they test both.
Basically, use a keyboard+mouse if it's a laptop, and don't put your hands right over it.
If it's a desktop, the power supply has a fan that will equal the hard drive's field.. so I would say it should make no difference. Keep the box as far away from you.

i would think a solid state drive would take less power.

Even before I was becoming really emhs sensitive I felt the radiation from an external hdd. And I think the enclosure was in plastic, maybe steel enclosure.or a steel network storage station will protect better. Anyway, I had to have it three meters away from me not to get harmed. So I would go ssd, but there may also be differences between them too. Lastly I would go with solid steel cabinet for the computer as I believe they blocks emf better than aluminium cabinets. There is not only the hdd that emits emf from a computer, also CPU etc. But old style steel cabinet should help a lot.

Yes, hard drives can be a big problem, although not all hard drives affect me the same way.  For example, when it comes to traditional hard drives, I have no problem with the Western Digital "Red" series.  However, I have BIG problems tolerating Hitachi/ HGST DeskStar drives.  And if you don't need lots of space, then an SSD drive would be best (I use Intel, but I suspect many brands are good).  

And probably a metal cabinet would be good too.  I use a Lenovo ThinkCentre tower at home, and it has a metal case.  At both home and at work, I use computers designed for "professional/industrial" use (as opposed to cheaper consumer stuff, which would more likely use plastic and lower-quality components)

I have a new computer.
The cabinet is a Coolermaster, which in itsself has a dampening filter inside.

A point of consideration forms the power supply in the computer.
There are types that produce a lot of elektrosmog, and there are who do not.
I had replaced the powersupply.
