I have an XPS Studio 1340 4GB RAM, 2.6 GHz processor, 500GB HD with 6MB L2 Cache. I bought this for 970$ before 1.5 yrs.
Now I am getting an Core i5 for the same money.
Is it better to get a faster processor or get an SSD
Suppose I have a Core i5-560M with 2.6 GHz with 500 GB HD with 3MB Cache.
and if I put a 256 GB SSD on the above processor. Which will be faster and why?
