Default Re: New Hard Drive For Laptop

I simply replaced the 1TB spinner in my laptop with a 500GB ssd. I decided I didn't need that much storage on my laptop so going from 1TB to 500GB disk space wasn't an issue for me.

I do use the optical drive on occasion so wanted to keep it. If you do remove the optical drive you could always get an external one that connects via USB.

When I got a netbook about 7 years ago which didn't have an optical drive, I went out and bought an external to use with it. I used the external a little during the 1st couple of weeks but then after that it sat in the cupboard, unused.

You'll need to decide for yourself if the optical drive is important to you.
