So my hard drive failed, when looking for vids on doing it, everyone was talking about replacing it with ssd even though their hard drive was fine

So that's what I did, the price is right, just about 100 bux for 1/2 terabyte, I'm sure those will go down in price but there's not a good reason to wait this upgrade is that remarkable. I use external drives and the cloud so half terabyte is plenty for native storage.

Absolutely the best upgrade ever, this 4 year old laptop is now faster then my 1 year old all in one

Cold boot is faster then recovering from sleep used to be, even restart takes about the same time as waking from sleep used to be.. I have 8 gigs of ram in this box so that"s not an issue.

SERIOUSLY, if you have an old computer, want a newer faster one, SAVE YOUR MONEY, your old box with a swapped in SSD hard drive will probably run faster then a new box, since as of now, most still come with the mechanical hard drive.


I didn't take chances, I made sure I purchased from a store where I could bring back an opened box if it didn't improve performance, make sure you do that in case you're not satisfied with the upgrade.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
