I have been looking for ways to improve my computer's speed (namely to install an SSD into my laptop), I was wondering what else I could do in order to make sure my connection is maximized. I have a Lenovo laptop with 8GB of RAM (never use all of that), Intel i5 quad core processor @ 2.30 ghz. My router is an ASUS RTAC1750, the ISP is providing the new modem. I am told I will not get 1 gbps over WiFi only the ethernet will be, that is until the second quarter of 2017. I am thinking of getting another ASUS router, a 3100 model... Would it be more beneficial to buy a new computer plus router? I think that the hard drive it has instead of a solid state drive is the bottleneck, but I am not a hardware guy (more of a software guy)... Would that be sufficient? Any suggestions?
