SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO slow


Terrible

I use a Sony hybrid with an i7 processor with a SSD which is really quick. I look after a neighbour's Toshiba laptop with this hard drive in it and a Celeron N2830 processor in it. It takes hours to complete Windows updates and is akin to watching paint dry. Just awful.
