Changing out the Hard Drive – Asus K55

Yesterday evening when I jumped on Periscope @techtakradio I decided it would be fun to exchange the hard drive in my Asus K55 Laptop with the Kingston 120GB SSD Drive I found at OfficeMax on Sale. What Started to be a simple exchange turned into 18 minutes on Periscope as we talked about Windows 10 and the Benefits of SSD Technology.

We were able to save the original meaning of our Periscope and edit it for you to check out on the ease of Switching out the Hard Drive in your Laptop
