I have Lenovo ThinkCentre M57 with Core 2 Duo E6550, 1 x 4 GB Memory and 160GB SATA2 HDD. I use this system for develop software using Visual Studio 2008 but it run too slow (not fast as i expect). I want to know what is the bottle neck of my system?
My friends tell me to change HDD from 160 GB SATA2 to 150GB 10000RPM SATA2. Is my friends correct?

Have lenovo staff here?
Welcome to the forum!
There are a few Lenovo employees roaming around in here helping out on a volunteer basis, but this is not an official support channel. Instead, this is designed to be a user-to-user support and discussion forum. You may or may not get an answer directly from one of the Lenovo employees as there are way more of us than them and all of them, even Mark, have full-time jobs doing other things.

What OS are you running? Can you run "Windows Task Manager", and when the system slows down, make a note of the CPU usage percentage, and how much memory is used and available. Then post it here.
One thing that can help: go to Control Panel/System/Advanced system settings/Performance/Visual effects and select "Adjust for best performance". The GUI will be less pretty, but faster.

Try to check the system performance using the testing software like a SiSoft Sandra. You can check particular subsystems (e.g. HD or memory) and compare the results with the other computer system using the same components.
