As the designated tech guy around the house, I knew even before my parents told me that their Windows 10 laptop is getting slower and slower that I had to swap the original hard drive with one of the solid-state variety, or SSD as they’re called. Having done the same thing to MacBook Pros years ago, I also knew what an SSD could do for them. Windows 10 would run a lot better for their needs, which involve light browsing, Netflix streaming, and the like. And I could postpone the inevitable switch to macOS. After all, they know their way around Windows well enough, so I don’t have to worry about them adapting to macOS.
Little did I know that the upgrade wouldn’t be done in a few hours, and that it’d turn out to be the best and worst laptop upgrade I ever attempted. Spoiler alert, it’s all because of Windows 10, not the laptop or the SSD.
