I read this interesting article on adding SSD drives to laptops:
It seems I have no option, since my laptop has only one HD bay and no optical drive.
Is there no option of connecting an SSD drive externally via USB? Not sure if this even exists as a concept but seems viable in principle; would have thought USB3 was fast enough for the job.
But then I'm no hardware ninja!
[EDIT - it's this laptop: Acer V5 552 (AMD A10 5757M; 6GB)
