I want to buy an external drive to run SSD, without touching my Windows HDD. However, this is a little investment so I am wondering if you can answer my few questions. Here are my laptop specs:
- Intel Core i3
- 6GB RAM
- 1 To HDD (Windows 10)
- No graphic card
Honestly, it runs very slowly, 5-10 minutes to startup, ~1 minute to start Microsoft Word. This is not the best laptop but this is not the question here. The questions are:
- Is a HDD sufficient or it will run slowly as on Windows.
- Can all external SSD run Ubuntu, or I have to buy one in particular
- I am sure 256 GB is sufficient but are you sure it is? I would use Ubuntu time to time, for programming, and I won’t store any personnal data or whatever except code.
I have already tried Dual Boot and it was good but I want another drive for Ubuntu now (don’t try to change my mind)
Thank you for your answers!
