Hi guys, got an upgrade related question for the laptop storage.

Currently running a 256GB Samsung 840 Pro. It's still quite fast. Provides enough storage. From what I know - on Sata 3 the only faster drive seems to be 850 Pro)

For normal workload - is there any point upgrading it? (or is it better to just wait it out for NVMe laptops to become cheaper?)

so many people are "but mah god the speeeeeddddssss" reality, you won't notice a realistic increase vs what you have (disclaimer before NVMe owners try to yes it will boot/load faster, real world after that is not so much different for cost). Doesn'#t mean i don't want an NVMe, but i'll wait for PCIe 4 to be finalised and boards to come before moving.

unless you are doing hardcore read/write operations (database, video editing etc) you won't really be using the full potential of the drive

Haha one less thing to look forward to - better put the nvme money towards saving. :p
