Want to boost the speed of your laptop?
The very best (and most underrated) method is to upgrade to a 7,200 RPM hard drive!
The difference between a 4,200/5,400 RPM hard drive and a 7,200 RPM hard drive is simply astounding.
Windows will boot up significantly faster, and programs will open without a lag!
It delivers far more “bang for the buck” than a RAM or processor upgrade.
This hard drive also includes a free fall sensor so your data will be protected against drops.
This is a Dell-branded hard drive manufactured by Seagate and it features an incredible 16MB of cache.
It is an industry-standard 2.5″ SATA hard drive that will work in nearly all modern notebooks, but be sure to confirm that your laptop uses a SATA hard drive! (Ignore the fact that it says it is for the Dell Inspiron 1521-in fact this will work just fine in any modern Dell notebook) You may need to remove the bracket adapter from your notebook’s current hard drive and put it on your new hard drive to fit it into your computer.
