Well, don't give up. If the slow machine doesn't have one (most
likely) you should consider having a solid state drive (ssd)
installed. Your boot speed will go up a lot. You can often get
away with a much smaller drive if you aren't using all of what you
have. I went from a 1tb drive on my old laptop to a 512gb ssd.
At that time, 1tb was more than i wanted to spend. It helped a
lot. I eventually took that drive and put it in my wife's machine
and gave up on my 8-year-old laptop, it was way slower than what

If applications are running more slowly than you would
like, it would be best to find out why before investing in
any new hardware.
If I recall correctly, Performance Monitor will show you
how much your CPU, memory and storage are being used over
time. Some of the same information is in Task Manager as

And if you are gaming over
the internet and you are on a 6 Mbps ADSL
connection a super-fast computer with the latest
processor and 32Gb of RAM won’t do you much
good. Computers are a system and they are made
up of various components and they all play a
roll. To again use my car example from the
previous email, the high-end Mercedes or BMW
which can go 160 or 180 miles an hour won’t do
you much good if you are taking the Road to
Hanna on Maui. For those who don’t know of it,
it’s a 2-lane highway which over a distance of
just over 64 miles has approximately 620 curves
many of them hairpin turns and you can rarely go
faster than 30 miles an hour. In this case that
highway would be equivalent to your internet
connection speed. I can take my 7-year old
laptop on my 275 Mbps fiber connection and
download things a lot faster than somebody with
the latest 9th generation I7 system
on a much slower connection.
all depends on what you are
doing. If you're into gaming on line real-time
over the internet, then you need one heck of a
lot more speed and memory. So it really
depends. You're better off than if you still
had an Apple II+ with 64k RAM and a 6052
What I'm saying is that
this is a very open-ended question, and your
answers will vary. For now, you have plenty,
and actually more memory than I have, but then
I'm a senior citizen.

Hi all, this is Michael.
Today I checked the
processor of my HP laptop and here is the
information I get for the processor:
Core(TM) i5-5200U CPU @ 2.20GHz 2.20
(RAM): 8.00 GB
System type: 64-bit
Operating System, x64-based processor
Is 2.2 GHZ enough? and
how fast can it run?
All comment and answers
are greatly appreciate it.
