Oh yeah. My mac which is 6 years old just got a new ssd (why that died I dunno, maybe when the battery blue up) but yeah apart from my f and j dots gone and some keys I need to bang on to get to work, the computer still runs fine. Its end of life is next year though which sucks as I love this computer. That is, no more os updates for it. By the way is there a way to find out the end of life for a windows laptop where you get no more windows updates especially if it is built by you?. My windows laptop is going to be 2 years old in June but it should still be fine for 5 ro 7 mor eyears if I treat it good, which I probably won't. Lol! Can't wait to try word on ot for when I go back to school.

Brian, I couldn't have said it myself. Moving to an SSD was by
far the most dramatic jump in computer performance I experienced.
I wouldn't go back to a mechanical hard drive if someone paid me
to do it. Like Gene, when I was on a mechanical drive, I thought
the SSD performance jump was hype. SSDs always justify the cost,
and I think are the part of the ocmputer that result in the most
noticable jump in speed. For instance, with a hard drive, firefox
took about 10-15 seconds to load. Similarly word did as well. Now
any program I click on loads instantaniously. For this reason, I
have no intention of replacing this PC as it feels like a newly

Ssd drives as has been said do help with loading times
definitely but once the programme/application is active it all
comes down to ram and CPU.
Absolutely, positively incorrect in practice. Active programs
are constantly doing disc I/O of various sorts, and more
importantly, so is the operating system. The gains in speed from
an SSD versus an HDD are incredibly significant to how quick
things are for the end user.
And the above is coming from someone who still has only HDDs in
