    Swapping laptop HDD w/ a SSD.

    Yea I've got the Samsung 7 series chronos laptop.
    It's a very fast and great desktop replacment laptop, but the slow 5200 RPM 1TB HDD is bringing it down.
    Specs:
    i7-3rd gen 2.4-3.3
    8GB RAM
    GT 650M 2GB
    1 TB HDD

    I would like to swap the Hard drive.
    As this is the first time I'm doing this, so I was looking for some tips.
    This is the SSD I want. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER
    and the installation kit: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

    I was wondering what I would have to do to copy ALL my files and everything to my new one.
    Do I just follow this guys instructions.

    Need some tips from the pros. @Justin @Aborted .

    Try Easeus todo.
    That is how I've done it.
    You can clone your drive with it.

    You can follow his instructions but always make sure to back up all of your stuff and make an ISO image of your drive just in case something goes wrong.

    ​I personally think that POS Graphics Card is your culprit.
    I am the seer in the dark,
    the vagabond of yore,
    valediction.
    I am the sum of all your parts,
    and proprietor of all.
    A miasma,
    the conclusion,
    blackmonger of Inlé,
    valediction.
    Synapses fray,
    my form now vivid,
    as torpor sets and blood grows tepid.
    With every ounce of flesh now offered,
    I hold your corpse within my coffers.
    Knitted cells now split asunder,
    stand alongside me brother.
    Take your place amongst my Owsla,
    we march at dawn now and forever.

    The 650M isn't that bad actually. I've played BF3 at 30+ frame rates at 1600x900.

    As for OP, I'd recommend a WD Black Dual Drive if you can afford it.

    It's not that bad, it's about the same as a 640 GT, which isn't that bad of a GPU.

    I didn't mean bad in itself, it's just horribly mismatched with your CPU, but that's just the nature of laptops.

    That's unfortunately true.

    I just wish you could build laptops like Desktops. Buying the components separately.
