I have just completed some upgrades on my laptop. Nothing special in that but I have taken the optical drive out and replaced it with a hard drive. In-fact the 750 GB hard drive had been the primary drive of the laptop. This is now a data drive. The new primary drive is a Samsung SSD series 840. It’s a 250 GB drive which hosts the software on my system. The RAM has also been boosted to 8 GB.
I’m hoping that this will extend the life of my Toshiba i5 Satellite Pro. I hardly ever use the optical drive so I don’t think that I will miss it. However to be on the safe side I have bought a USB 3 external drive you never know,I might want to burn a disk.
