    If you compare the lines says Disk Sequential and Disk Random and compare that to Moolys numbers, you can clearly see that your HDD is extremely slow in comparison.

    Just by swapping to an SSD (even a cheap one) your Random 16.0 Read score will go up a lot, and you will notice the results in daily usage.

    Overall the other numbers, except Disk reads are decent, nothing to worry about there since you are not a Power User.

    Yes, those disk speeds are surprisingly slow (I must check my 11yr old Acer laptop that is running W10 and see what that comes out at).

    An SSD has to make a big difference to the overall 'user experience' based on those figures.

    Yes it's a good and cheap alternative, at least it's way faster than your current HDD.

    That SSD looks OK to me.

    When I was looking at the Lenovo site I think I noticed they had a forum as well. You could also ask for confirmation of your choice there although I can't really see any issues.

    In preparation for clean installing you will need to create a 'bootable' flash drive of Windows 10 using the 'Media Creation Tool'.

    Second option here currently:
    Download Windows 10

    Your PC should already have all the license details stored by MS and so there is nothing to do on that score.

    You also need to become familiar with how to set your PC to boot from the memory stick. That is something you can look at now and a quick web search shows it to be a little different to usual (a hidden button ?).

    I will have another look at that later It will be straightforward though.

    Jeez, that is slow, hahah! But still good enough for many light Linux or older Windows distributions.

    Without doubt

    At 11yr old its not worth spending money on and in any case the HDD is an older EIDE type and so not easily available, let alone looking for a higher performance version.

    Once its up and running its not to bad but start up takes a couple of minutes and disk thrashing seems to go on for ever. LibreOffice opens in around 35+ seconds (I just timed it) compared to 1.5 on the Dell with an SSD.

    I'm kinda fond of the old thing though.
