I'm not really a Superuser, just a regular user, but I do have a problem to solve.
I have an old laptop (Acer 5315). Specs as follows: * HDD: 2.5" format - 250Gb * RAM: 2Gb * Processor: 560 @ 2.13 Ghz * System Type: 32 bit * USB: 2.0 * OS: Windows 10 * Browser: Firefox v50.0.2
I'm using a 1Tb HDD as a backup drive connected to a USB socket.
My problem is slow browsing, despite the fact that my internet download speed is nominally 70 Mb per sec.. Whist browsing I frequently get a message saying a script has stopped, or is busy.
I understand that if I buy a SSD, that I could use that to speed up my browsing experience. Two questions: Is it true, I can use an SSD to increase browsing experience? If it is true, how would I use a SSD for this purpose? I am assuming at the moment that slow browsing is the result of my HDD, that it's a bottleneck of sorts. Thanks. Rich
