First I used a 20 dollar software called "Paragon Migrate OS to SSD" to move Windows 7 from the hard drive to a Crucial 128GB SSD.
Then I followed DELL's very clear disassembly instructions on the web, took apart the laptop and swap out the slow 5400 rpm hard drive and put in the 128GB SSD.
Memory is cheap nowadays, so I also double the memory to 8 GB (4GB x 2).
Now I have a laptop with 128GB SSD and 8GB of memory. Buying a similar computer from DELL would have cost me about 1000 dollar.
DIY upgrade saved me a lot of money and turned this slow computer into a speedy machine.
I plan to use the leftover hard drive as an external backup, the leftover memory chips I will sell on ebay. Nothing is wasted.
fast computing and able to handle whatever multi-tasking i throw at it. really love it.
The over-sized touch pad is placed so that it is virtually impossible to avoid triggering random mouse activity if you are using the laptop as a laptop instead of on a desktop (where you can more easily keep your palms raised at least 2 inches higher than your fingers at typing level).
The random mouse activity causes things like random cut and pastes, random deletes of document sections, random re-formats and shotgun like distribution of the characters from the word you are attempting type throughout the document.
I purchased this laptop just over two months ago. It seemed great until I actually started trying to do work on it that involved anything more than a paragraph or two of typing. As someone who spent 5 years testing laptops I have been able to adapt to numerous touch-pads without much difficulty, so I assumed I would adapt and to this one soon enough. After more than two months it has become increasingly clear to me that this isn't your normal kind of adjustment getting used to a new keyboard and touch pad. This laptop has a serious design flaw that makes it virtually unusable as a laptop (at least for people like myself with slightly larger than average sized hands).
Additionally the keys don't have great action being a little on the squishy side and occasionally sticking.
Excellent graphics for the price... but not worth it if you plan to do more than use it to watch movies and play games.
