I've been using a Dell XPS 17 Laptop since 2012, and I love it. Big 17" screen, full keyboard with a separate numpad, NVidia GPU and Waves Audio. Just a great package and perfect for development. And no problems upgrading from Win 7 to Win 8 to Win 10 Enterprise

But... I was finding it was running really slow the last few years. Updates were painful, Visual Studio took several minutes to start, overall just sluggish.

So last weekend I just bit the bullet, and got an SSD drive to become my primary drive. I had originally planned to remove the DVD drive and install the original drive in its place, but found that there was an 2nd empty drive bay! Bonus.

So got the drive in, and installed Win 10 Ent. fresh. It all went smoothly and all of a sudden this laptop was cooking again. It only has a SATA 2 interface, but still significantly faster. I am just starting the process of copying files across from the old drive and I couldn't be happier.

I hope this gives me another 3-5 years of life...

Andreas
