You're going to get the most performance boost from a Solid State Disk.

120 GB SSD

Install your OS/Programs there and keep all other files on the new data drive (your current root drive).

If you have tons of programs, then setup library/folder redirection by changing the docuement/picture/music library folders to folders on your data drive.

agree, get ssd, best upgrade for your laptop.
Don't get 120GB though. Get 256GB. Minimum 180GB.
