RPM is the rotations per minute of a hard drive which effects the speed of data transfer.

Solid State Drives are non-moving memory, so access speed is instant.

        Installing really is easy, so I understand a lack of detailed instructions. Lets face it, you're ordering memory for your computer, so you should be able to do this yourself. My upgrade helped for sure. It's not blazing speed, but did what I expected.

              Did not improve the 'Windows' lag, but did notice a big improvement in opening applications, photographs in files etc.
              An ecconomical way to get the best out of a 32 bit system without having to replace everything but the plug.
