SortOfTested24643300dMight try cutting off of gnome and onto i3 or similar. Will eliminate the possibility it's just gnome being gnome. Work laptop freezes at times context switching and it's an i7 x1 extreme with 64gb/ram
Demolishun11543300dCan it take two satas?
A 128GB ssd is $25. It could be the OS and app ssd. Put data on another sata or external drive. However, external drive for 4tb is like $100. So maybe not a solution.
curioustools5828299d@SortOfTested shit it's a gnome issue? That's the only thing that makes ubuntu usable for me. So what's the alternative to gnome that won't suck in context switching? Also bear in mind that i don't get Ubuntu much, but i would like to keep all the usual stuff working : nautilus/any other decent file manager, gedit, snap store , sudo for commands (not brew or pub or whatever other distros use), etc
curioustools5828299d@Demolishun it could i guess. My friend once told me he switched his optical drive with a ssd and joining it with some kind of temporary switch. But again his laptop fucks up once every 3 so i will definitely go towards a permanent soldering if i try that.
My main question is that my AS runs from opt/ folder and makes a ton of cache in folders like /.android , some etc/ folders, nd in our project folder too(which i make in my own partition , say P: drive ) .
How is everything going to work once i add an additional sdd? Would i be keeping my os there?
akshar2483299d@StopWastingTime Going with an SSD is the fix! Having your OS on it will feel magically snappy :)
Also most of the times, money spent on a new laptop battery is money wasted imo.
akshar2483299dBuy an enclosure for your internal drive and use it via usb 3.0
