I have a 2nd generation i5 laptop from 2011, I wanted to make the load time even better. However when I installed my SSD drive on the laptop,
it was able to write to the SSD, but it was never able to boot with the drive. I even tried Linux and it seems its a hardware issue.
You probably need to do a little more research before making claims like
this. I've run 2004 IBM Thinkpads on SSDs for years. There may be incompatibilities in some drives/firmware/laptops -- for example, I could
get a 64 GB PATA SSD to boot in a T42 and T43, but a 128GB SSD would only
boot in the T43.
Thinkpads were particularly picky about drives, as they had built-in
features to protect drives from motion damage that required specific drives.
