I want to change my laptop hard disk with a SSD one

Microsoft Windows 7 (64-bit)


My notebook System Model is HP 2000 Notebook PC that came with Intel core i3 and Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2348M CPU @ 2.30GHz, 2300 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s), Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 4.00 GB, and Hardware Abstraction Layer Version = "6.1.7601.17514". I have installed additionally windows 7 ultimate. 
My question is:

1. Can I upgrade the hard disk to SSD 500 GB?

2. Can I install windows 10 and MS Office 2016 or later after hard disk change?

3. Will there be any system performance improvement with 1 alone or with 1 and 2 both.


Thanks and regards,

1. Yes a SATA 2.5 inch SSD is a drop in replacement for a mechanical hard drive. Major bump up in performance. 

2. Yes but obviously you have to purchase appropriate licenses. Not free. 

3. All the performance improvement will come from the SSD. Windows 7 and Windows 10 in my not insignificant experience perform about the same and the Office version you want is a matter of personal preference. Office 2007 and 2010 and 2016 and 2019 and 365 all take about the same system resources. I personally subscribe to Office 365 for my whole office. 


You can clone the mechanical hard drive to the SSD and keep right on using your same software, files and settings, just working much faster. Post back if you need help there. 


If this is the info you needed please accept as solution.
