Speed up my notebook
I'd like to speed up my notebook i5 first gen.
I have thought about these opportunities:
- Add SSD drive (change current SATA HDD)
- Increase RAM (4G -> 8G)
- Upgrade i5 (+200 MHz)

Ubuntu Linux

Which do you recommend? Why?
Do you have any benchmark about increased speed?

It is a good advice. I often do this on my Mac Os. I use MacClean, it is a free tool that helps the user to locate and remove duplicate photos, songs, apps, documents and other files. Disk Drill and dupeGuru also popular applications. Here you can find how to find duplicate files on Mac - https://www.cleverfiles.com/howto/best-duplicate-file-finder-mac.html with apps, and description to each one.
