I'm very competent with computers and nothing is running in the background.
Keep in mind I bought this laptop 3 years ago for like $400 and that included a printer and wireless router, its not exactly high quality. The low clocked celeron m with its 1mb L2 cache is just too slow. Granted I only have 784mb ram but i am gonna upgrade to 2gb. I picked up a 1.86 ghz pentium m and I am planning on cleaning out the dust when i install it. It has always ran hot and I can tell most of the heat is coming from where the HDD is.
Mainly I wanted to know if anyone has had experience putting a SSD into a notebook.
I'm looking at this one right now http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820208445
and it seems to have good reviews with people running their OS on it even though its not recommended.
