Do you use HD or SSD?

I’m finding the OS a slow to manage qubes with a pc made of quality hard disk, 16gb ram and quad core intel. It seems that the System would require an ssd to run qubes smoothly

It will definitely run noticeably faster on an SSD.

SSD for VM and HDD for storage.

Be sure to use no TLC, QLC SSD.
Multi level cell flash disk is bad enough.

Trust important file storage only to low capacity <=4TB spinning disk or tape
