Sorry, I forgot to add something, I can't replace the hard drive. It's a very long story and I don't really want to explain it but please work off the assumption that I can't. Thanks for replying though!

changing a HDD isnt hard, theres like less than 5 screws at the most for laptops.

The first laptop is a fair bit better. there's always external storage if you absolutely cannot replace HDD (but seriously, its like changing the batteries in a gameboy)

Mildly off topic, but I am absolutely amazed that manufacturers still use 5400rpm drives in systems they are dubbing "Gaming Machines". How much could they possibly be saving the end user?

I've been wondering the same.They must at least use a 7200RPM HDD or a combination of a fast HDD with a small capacity SSD.
