What kind of SSD uses the Samsung X360 notebook.


This is the specification of the SS hard disk this laptop uses.

The X360 also features the option of an ultra-fast and reliable 128GB Solid State Drive (SSD)*, which significantly enhances performance compared to a typical hard disk drive (HDD), with a boot time that is 25-50 percent faster and data access times that are 300 percent faster (53 MB/s) for reading and 150 percent faster (28 MB/s) for writing.

HOW TO IMPROVE THE SPEED IN WIN7


The best way to speed up W7 is to install an SSD (Solid State Drive), such as one of these drives:
http://www.compusa.com/applications/category/category_tlc.asp?CatId=5298&name=Internal-Solid-State-Hard-Drives&

While they are expensive, you will_not_ regret the investment. To save $, you don't need to purchase a large SSD drive. Put W7 on a small capacity SSD (commonly referred too as a boot drive) and then use a regular hard drive (your old one) for mass storage. For example, on my computer, I use a 40GB SSD for W7 (C:) and a regular 500GB hard drive (D:) for music, videos, large downloads, pics, etc.

There are also a plethora of websites that will show you how to speed up W7. Here is one:

Another way to speed up W7 is to install more memory, but you won't get near the noticeable performance increase as an SSD. In fact, after installing an SSD, if you try to enable ready boost on a flash drive W7 will tell you that it is not neccessary because you already have an SSD that is faster.

I have ASUS x5dc. I have installed windows 7 64 bit. Can i change OS?. My laptop is very slow.


Windows 7 is a very good operating system. But, the laptop may have a slow processor. Try to see if you can upgrade the processor to a core 2 duo or above. Also, try to upgrade or increase the memory to 2 gigabytes or above to 4 gigabytes if possible. The computer is guaranteed to speed up with memory and processor upgrades. Also, try to upgrade the hard disk drive to a SSD or Solid State Drive and you will see awesome speed.
