I just got laptop HP Pavilion 15-e039sc for my birthday and I'm thinking of buying an SSD into it, so please help me
My price range is £86 = 140$ = 110€
SSD will be used primary for system (Windows 8.1, I might downgrade to Windows 7, if I won't get used to 8.1), programs (basic ones like Office, VLC player... and Adobe Photoshop, it would be awesome if I could run Sony Vegas but I think my laptops performance is too low for SV) and some data (not too many, because I have an external hdd and I use cloud).
That's why I was thinking about 120 Gb version, but my friend told me "The more data is on SSD, the more slower will the SSD be" and he recommended me to buy 240 Gb version, because of this reason.
Another friend recommended me Intel 520, Crucial M500 and Crucial M550 SSDs.
Than I told him, I want to use Photoshop and perhaps Sony Vegas, he said absolutely not to buy these SSDs - according to him, these programs will soon or later "destroy" these SSDs and that's why I should buy at least Intel S3700, but that's totaly out of my money range.
So I need your help guys,
Is my friend wrong and should I buy one of Intel 520, Crucial M500 and Crucial M550 or some other SSD?
Is he right and should I safe money and later buy something like Intel S3700 or some other SSD?
Or do you have any other solution for my "problem"?
Btw. I know my laptop isn't really good for PS and SV, but I got it as a present so I can't sell it and buy some other laptop...
I hope you can help me!
Thank you for any answers!
P.S. - sorry for my bad English
