Internal storage: Storage located inside of the device and usually not removable.

 

External storage: Storage located on the outside of the device and is easily removable.

It's worth mentioning that internal storage is usually connected to the motherboard via a faster medium than external.

Never impossible in my experience, but it can be hard

Impossible would depend on your level of tech skills really.

The main benefit and reasoning I prefer Internal is for reliability. SD card(External) really goes badly quickly. Especially with you ejecting it, moving it and inserting it in many devices. Internal storage is preferable to me because in many cases, it also means the device has a unibody design(more specifically a phone) and not removable parts.

These days internal storage can go up to TB, like external can.

Yeah, tablets are kind of behind. You'll need a large SD card to make it worthwhile.

Chrome book that we own in our household only has 32gb of built in SSD, and have an option to get 128gb. I have used it here and there for showing an family member how to do this and that lol other then that it's slow and no space left since the OS has taken it all up. Still nice little thing to carry around

I would first say that space is completely different when it comes to internal vs external. Your machine may only have space for 1 HDD, but using an external you'd be able to two different drives to store data on, or have a backup of your computer on.

Generally, they is not much difference between internal and external storage apart from the interface it is connected to, if you have an external hard drive is still a hard drive.

But to be honest people are more likely to use solid state as hard drive are sensitive to drop damage.
