Not having improvement after installing additional RAM, it was suggested to me that I purchase a SSD. I am currently going through the Forums to learn about doing this properly. There is a lot of valuable information here.
However, one question I've not been able to find an answer to is; do I need to purchase the OS (no disc, came preloaded on existing notebook), and how to get the OS onto the SSD? If we're talking about cloning a drive, am I relegated to only having an external SSD?
