I’m wanting to breathe new life into an older Dell 1200 series laptop that I’ve had for a long time. I like the laptop and it’s great for the kids to use, but it’s gotten slower and slower and it seems that no amount of maintenance to it helps with performance. It also runs Windows XP, which I don’t have any problems with, but I’m wanting to upgrade it to Windows 7.
The Dell laptop has a 1.3ghz Intel Celeron processor and a max memory capacity of 1GB and I have a 30GB 7200 RPM hard drive in it.
I’m wanting to see if a new Solid State Drive would be an effective way to make the laptop as “like new” as possible and if I’ll be able to run Windows 7 on it, even with 1GB of memory.
