Closest thing I could find was $599:
Any decent laptop with a 7200-rpm hard drive will be up and running smoothly in 5 minutes. I have such a machine (ThinkPad X230) as a Windows Insider machine. Works great.how to check.
Maybe put a 512 GB SSD in it and that will give it a new lease on life.
i have i5 with 8gb ad 1TB hdd disc hp laptop. when i start taking 20 minutes to just starrt up to do any thing wasting lot of time
imo that is just what it doesI've never seen an HDD-to-SSD performance difference of several-minutes-to-a-few-s
RIGHT that's what happens everytimeThat sounds really bizarre. An SSD simply isn't THAT much faster than an HDD in terms of raw speed. Yes, it is faster in every way (access time, I/O throughput, etc) but for -that much- change on a re-imaged drive, your HDD would have had to be unbelievably fragmented or had just metric tons of tiny startup files/drivers.
