Bought a New Laptop. But it's slow and freezes
Recently I bought a new laptop. It's really nice, and has Intel i7. But I've noticed that it's really slow and freezes almost every time. It has an HDD hard drive. Will an SSD help solve my problems. And it makes noises when running. Here's the laptop: http://www.staples.com/HP-Notebook-15-AY163NR-15-Intel-Core-i7-1TB-5400RPM-Serial-ATA/product_2460649
An SSD would definitely help this laptop. If you are not overly concerned with disk space, a lower capacity 250gb drive are relatively cheap now, so invest in one, and you will definitely notice quicker performance. If you are still getting freezes with an SSD in there....then there may be something else causing it, but the SSD will still help overall.
Does the noise sound like it is coming from the hard drive, or is it more like a fan?
As USAFRet has said, bloatware is a major problem on new laptops. I use PC Decrapifer to clean any laptops I'm preparing first. It will find a lot of known bloatware and suggest what you can remove.
Is this a good SSD... http://www.microcenter.com/product/465261/240GB_SSD_Plus

Yes, it's an OK drive.
However...is 240GB enough space?
