    hello,

    My laptop has been going slower than I expected. Will upgrading my hard drive to a SSd make my computer faster?

    I have uploaded a pic of my laptop specs

    Thanks

    Yes upgrading will make a significant difference. However, you may have other issues that are slowing it down that should probably be addressed. However, if you are going to upgrade then I would recommend performing clean install of Windows and it should run much better.

    Specs don't really matter on hard drive upgrades. Other than the interface, but all new computers have SATA so you're good to go. I would use AOMEI Backuper and clone to the SSD that way from your primary hard drive. All you have to do is plug in the SSD in the computer, pick the main hard drive as source in AOMEI Backuper and the SSD as destination. Be sure to select align partition.

    According to your image, you appear to have a HP Pavilion x360 - 13-s123cl 13.3" laptop.

    According to its support site, it comes with these specs:
    Intel Core i5-6200U 2.30 GHz dual core processor
    12 GB(8 GB + 4 GB) of DDR3-1600 RAM
    1 TB SATA 5400 RPM hard drive

    Replacing the hard drive in it is not a user-friendly job.
    HERE is the pictorial step-by-step guide on how to do it.

    According to the specs in your laptop, Windows 10 Home 64-bit should not be running slow.
    We have no idea how well you maintain it and what you have installed in it, so that can have a big impact on speed and performance.
