Definatley get an SSD....my 8 year old lapdog with the original i5 520M processor laptop still going strong thanks to a RAM upgrade and SSD a couple of years back. Benchmarking against newer processors shows I’ll get just double the performance if I spend £600.....not really worth it as it’s fast enough for most stuff already!

Would this work on our 12 year old cat? He's not that keen on laps either.
Any 512GB around? Not sure whether to replace my mac with an sshd or just an ssd. Can you get any ssd's in 3.5" or you always have to get a converter? Many thanks

480gb for £89.99 Like new Never used.
Thought the Crucial MX500 CT250MX500SSD1 250 GB 3D NAND SATA 2.5 Inch Internal SSD was a better deal at 65.99 at amazon
Ive no experience with upgrading PCs. Are these easy to fit? My local computer shop wanted £130 - £140 to fit one.
Lol

If its a laptop, you probably only have 1 Sata port for the disk so get a USB to SATA adapter (Ebay, amazon, China websites)
Example:
ebay.co.uk/sch…t=0

It should look like this one or similar (the 2nd USB port is to allow more power to be delivered - not all drives need it):
ebay.co.uk/itm…03l


or you can opt for an enclosure
ebay.co.uk/sch…c=1

A desktop will simply need a SATA cable and a spare header on the motherboard (there are usually a lot of spare headers).
ebay.co.uk/itm…ic4


Plug the SD into the USB adapter/enclosure and use software like this (its free edition) to 'clone disk' or 'Migrate to SSD' (same thing). If given the option to 'Align Partitiions for SSD' tick it. You get the option to resize partitions or leave them alone.
partitionwizard.com/fre…tml

'Migrate to SSD' Instuctions for Partition Wizard
partitionwizard.com/hel…tml
(Be aware, after finishing the wizard you have to click the Apply button along the bar to start the operation)

After the clone is done. Take the old disk out and put the SSD into the laptop. If your SSD does not boot for any reason, either perform a Windows repair or boot Partition Wizard and select 'Rebuild MBR' and apply.

YouTube has plenty of Videos. Find your model number (usually one a sticker on bottom or along screen bezel) and put it into YouTube with 'upgrade HDD', 'Upgrade Hard Drive' or 'Upgrade to SSD' on end.

Example: If your model was Lenovo L430, put "Lenovo L430 upgrade hard drive" into youtube and you'll usually find a video with your model or something similar.

Good advice - I suspect the £140 quote was for a laptop - depending on the model they can be a bugger to disasssmble to the point you can remove the HD...

Haven't seen a laptop that makes it hard to change the hard drive for years.
try an HP X360 :-)
This actual SSD along with a few others are on prime now so you can use their £10 off a first order offer to make it a little cheaper

I think the £140 would have included the cost of the SSD, as there is no way this is 3 hours work (estimating £39+VAT per hour). You click 'clone' in the software and walk away until its finished.

Nearly all modern laptops (there are exceptions) have trapdoors or removable bottom panels. The worse case nowadays is usually lifting the keyboard or palmrest, but thats pretty rare. Older netbooks could be a nightmare.

Very detailed and informative advice, also it will help if we knew what model is your laptop
fair price
Got this in July 2016 for £39.99 with a voucher. Surprised the price is still at this level and not come down like memory prices have.

Was the "voucher" a £20+ gift card??? If not, do explain.
is 240 GB good enough for the OS and some games?

Really depends on what you mean by some games. Modern games these days are ridiculously big. 50-60 gig is common. Pubg, bf1, etc.
So. Considering windows will need up to about 50 gb, long term, you have space for another 3 or 4 big games, or maybe 8-10 "normal sized" games.
If you want an extensive library installed, it's worth going 512gb. Or if you have another drive for tier 2 game storage this should be fine as your t1 gaming drive.

Memory prices have gone down? Where? When? Pretty sure they've nearly doubled since this time last year.

I got 1 stick of 8gb corsair ddr4 2133mhz for 42£, its now 96£ or something silly on amazon! The ram I ordered yesterday was 240£ for 16gb.. Its really not gone down.
Bought and fitted one of these last week.

Partitioned it, and put Win10 on 18gb, and Ubuntu 18.04 on the remaining 60gb. Both OS work great, and the drive flys!

Sorry I meant portable memory like SD cards etc which Sandisk also produce. I have no experience of PC memory prices.
