My laptop has ST1000LM024 (1TB, 5400 RPM) disk. Ever since I bought the laptop the boot time seemed to worry me. When I was using Win8 it seemed ok, then I upgraded to Win10. Boot time was not at all acceptable. Afterwards I did a clean install of Win10. Boot time never improved.
After looking at the specs of my laptop I figured that the internal HDD could be the bottleneck. I want to swap the spinning disk with an SSD variant. Could you suggest if my laptop can accomodate an SSD (I think it should). I am not sure of what model of SSD I should purchase. And what should be the connector type. Does my laptop motherboard have a provision to connect an SSD?
If you would be so kind, could you suggest SSD models that I can compare?
