:welcome:    Demas,

 

The computer is fine as it is but are you happy with the performance, that really is what matters.

 

Most folk like to have an SSD for their faster boot times and if that is what you are after please keep in mind that Windows and the hardware drivers will need to be installed to the SSD once it has been fitted, we need to know your plans before going into too much detail but meanwhile there are some compatible SSD devices for you to look at here

Hi Demas,

 

It really is a matter of personal preference, as explained in my reply #2 an SSD would give you faster boot times, if you wanted to also store data to the SSD you would need a larger capacity SSD than if for Windows only, all of your course work should also be backed up to another device such as an external HDD in case of SSD problems, in essence you would have three copies, one on the SSD, one on the computers own HDD and one on the external HDD.
