Finally got around (or rather getting my bf) to swap my mechanical hard drive to an ssd and I’m. So. Happy. My 8 year old laptop runs like new despite investing peanuts.
Dear everyone who kept telling me my laptop is unusable, not worth saving and telling me to drop 500$ on a new one, also told me to drop 700$ on a new iPhone instead of investing 50$ for an authorised battery swap. You were wrong. I saved so much money
