Upgrading old laptop with new SSD
I am planning to upgrade a SL510 with a new SSD, I am going to use this laptop until I get a new one next year. I want an SSD because my old HDD almost died with information that I didn't want to loose. Is it advisable for me to buy an SSD and install it onto the next laptop to preserve work? or should I just buy a usable HDD for one year's use, and then somehow migrate my data onto the new laptop's storage? I am on a budget, and I want to get a 256GB and up SSD or 100GB and up HDD because I'm not going to use the HDD much. Please help!
Crucial MX100 is the best bang for buck 256gb ssd money can buy right now. There was a deal for it at 89.99 new i think last week.
Google for "Acronis True Image how to clone drive". You can literally make a "clone" drive of your current hard drive and swap the SSD as if nothing happened... its quite amazing. Also btw Crucial MX100 comes with a FREE Legal copy of the software too lol.
