As Steve said, What matters most is whether the machine meets your needs or not, not what the numbers are (even though those are definitely not shabby). WEI scores are more for being a benchmark to alert one that performance is falling off.

I'm okay with my 3-yr old college laptop... for now
Any suggestions to improve the scores? SSHD? Ram?

Agreed, for a laptop an SSD is really the only significant upgrade you can make besides adding more ram if the laptop allows it. Just search around with your laptop model and number and see what others are using as their SSD of choice. Just to make sure everything will work properly Wouldn't hurt to update to the latest bios, if you already haven't done so before installing a new SSD to a laptop.

Not that expensive any more. What country are you from? If you are on a budget I would suggest a 120/128GB SSD for the Operating system and keep all your data on a regular HDD.

Well what size were you hoping to get GB wise? You can probably snag a Crucial M500 240GB for 150 dollars if you shop around. Unless you want a TB 2.5 inch, then well yes, the price would be enormous.

Whoops, didn't realize it was a laptop, I just got out of bed. No chance of having 2 drives then.
