You didn't mention your computer specs? Not likely, a computer is made up of components that work together and with one high performance part you will not see a big increase in speed. That said, If you have a Top-of -the Line Computer with the best of all components available ($5,000 +) it would have a SSD drive, usually to load your OS on. At present the large SSD go for around $1,300.

Can a 2010 macbook be upgraded?


Yes! You can upgrade the hard drive to an SSD, and max out the RAM. Do a little googling with your exact model info to learn how much RAM it can handle. That is about all you can do though. I upgraded my '09 and it's faster than when I bought it, and rivals some of today's laptops.

Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5084 CPU upgrade


It is possible but usually not worth the hassle.
Changing to another CPU chip that fits your motherboard may only show a 3-10% performance change.

See videos of CPU replacement in laptops like yours:

or

In general, you are better off adding more RAM (memory) or replacing the hard drive with a faster SSD (Solid State Drive) to make a laptop "fly". Your laptop can hold a max of 8 GB RAM:

In MOST laptops, slower 5400 RPM drives are used, and this is the main performance bottleneck. A 7200 RPM drive or (better yet) a SSD drive will help matters, as will more RAM (the most cost-effective speed increase).

Sony vgn-z520


Usually, it is not possible to upgrade the cpu on a laptop. In rare cases where it is possible the upgrade usually costs nearly as much as a new laptop.
However, you can significantly upgrade the laptop's performance by adding more memory and by replacing the old slow hard drive.
Your Sony VGN-Z250 is usually supplied with 3GB of RAM memory. You can replace the existing memory modules with a new kit consisting of 2 x 2GB modules (total 4GB). The type of memory you need is "SO-DIMM" (meaning laptop size) DDR3 - 1066MHz (you may use 1333MHz memory but it will only run at 1066MHz speed). I would suggest either G-Skill or Crucial brand memory. And you can replace the hard drive with an SSD. You'll be amazed at the boost this provides, seriously. I would suggest either Samsung 840 EVO or Sandisk Ultra for an SSD. Both offer super-fast performance compared to your old spinning hard drive, and both have very low power consumption so they run cool and give your laptop a few extra minutes of battery power. You can clone/copy your existing Windows setup onto the SSD using free Macrium Reflect software or free software from the SSD maker's website. Or, you can do a fresh install of Windows.

Please tell me if I can install this SSD drive in my Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop. What is the difference between SSD SATA II and III


A sata 3 SSD on a sata 2 PC will slow down slightly to sata 2 speeds, and vice versa. But this is usually acceptable since any current model SSD is much much faster than a normal hard drive so even installing a slower model SSD will be a big improvement. Its analogous to a porsche 911 and a volkswagen beetle. The 911 is faster than the beetle but both are much faster than horses.

your laptop has a normal hard drive. Most SSD's except apple SSD's are the same size and have the same connectors so 99% of the time it will work. you can see pictures of the SSD and compare it with your current hard drive

Can I upgrade the hdd in Flybook V5 (hdd is 80 GB Toshiba MK8009GAH) with an ssd? Which model would do ?


Well, I answer my own question, in case somebody else is interested. I bought a ZIF SSD on ebay (Kingspec 128 GB), after inquiring with the seller if it was compatible (any 1.8' ZIF drive SHOULD be, at any rate) for about $140. Together I also bought, for additional $7.50, an USB - ZIF adapter enclosure and cable. I put the SSD in the USB enclosure and cloned the Flybook harddisk, using Acronis True Image, to te SSD in the USB enclosure. Then I opened the Flyboo. This was not very difficult: there's a protective sticker sheet under the battery, to remove carefully in order to access all the screws, then a lot of screws of 3 different sizes to keep track of. The original harddisk is kept in place just by a sticker sheet which peels off easily enough. Then I replaced the SSD in place of the HD, screwed back all the screws (careful here not to swap different sizes!) and put back in place the sticker sheet under the battery. It just worked at first try, and I'd say it works really great, much faster to boot up and resume from standby.

Please advise me new ssd will fit into ibm thinkpad t41 laptops


Yes, just get one the same size (typically 2.5") and interface (IDE or SATA).

FYI: It is important to note that SSD is typically faster than an HD but they use more power so will reduce the battery life in a notebook. I upgraded my notebook to a 7200 RPM HD which is much faster than the original 5400 RPM HD without sacraficing battery life to SDD.

Reference: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/ssd-hdd-battery,1955.html

I hope this helps.
