  1. Add an SSD for, y'know.

  2. This seems better.

  3. Damn, WiFi and DVD...

I'm using Wifi as ethernet just isn't a viable option for me. The DVD is used for things like games that can only be installed via DVD player that I own.

You must be some kind of retro gamer, I assume?

Sorta. I have a good few games from the early 2000's that I still have the discs kicking around for. I think one is Plants Vs Zombies.

Ah, I see you're a man of culture as well.

Just by looking at your profile pic...

I am bursting with culture. Danny flows through my veins... The Trashman is Strong in me.

Swap the hard drive for a 1TB SSD if you can manage the extra $60-ish. If not, at least add a 240-256GB SSD for booting and most common programs. Booting and running from a hard drive is just painful with SSD prices down.

So, If I do get an SSD, Will I need a hard drive as well?

You only need a hard drive if you need more total storage space than you can afford to buy in SSD form.
