My old laptop was ready to be put in the garbage. It was slow, freezing and crashing all the time. I downgraded Windows version two times and it was still a real pain to use. After replacing the hard drive with this solid state drive and installing a light version of Linux, my laptop was back to life! The drive was a breeze to install and configure and it is so much faster that I just cannot recognize my old laptop! It's a nice and easy way to increase the lifespan of an old computer and be able to use it again for a while. Of course, there are still some limitation of that machine and it is not as fast as lightening but it is good to use for everyday tasks.
