At my work we've got a lot of old Pentium 4 class computers still. We've been slowly replacing them for those that really need more power but we'll need to be replacing all of them eventually. That brings me to my question:
I'm surprised that I haven't seen more opinions on this. Ideally, yes, replace the whole thing and use an SSD in the replacement. But do you think an SSD alone would be a significant update to these older machines and make it feel snappier?
Well, programs would load and save a little more quickly. And the system response would appear a little snappier. But I don't think that it is a worthwhile expenditure.
I think that it would be be better to use the money to speed the replacement cycle.
