Old Netbook Fresh build - Windows 8/SSD?
I'm put a few posts on over the last couple of months relating to my wife's Acer Aspire One which has been running like a dog lately. I've tried changing the AV and problems still persist so this weekend I was going to re-install windows from scratch. It was fine for her originally so the spec of the machine must be OK so I was just going to re-install Windows 7 but I got thinking could I do anything to make an old netbook any better. I can't afford to buy a new machine so I though with the price of SSD dropping maybe an upgrade would make a good option. She is mainly an internet user, using it for shopping/facebook/skype etc so I'm not sure how much of a boost an SSD would make?
I was also wondering if I could put Windows 8.1? Would I be wasting my time/money trying to get an SSD and Windows 8 onto it? Should I just rebuild it with Windows 7? Suggestions.
