Yep that is ironic
5200rpm I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did
I did add a ssd in it and it's amazing what that actually did for it in general performance
I first had a 256 mx100 in it then realized I didn't need that much space and got a 128 mx100 instead for it and that's perfect disk space wise for what it's used for.
I have Linux mint 17.1 on a flash drive that I use on it too
