elementary OS Boot Time After Replacing HDD with SSD

I have an older Asus K55A that I use for distro testing, or at least I did until my daughter claimed it for herself. It’s had elementary OS on it for a while now and since she’s repurposed the laptop for homework I figured she’d appreciate a disk drive upgrade.

So I replaced the 5400 rpm hard disk drive with a $60 120 GB solid state drive from Amazon. Boot up time for elementary OS (already one of the fastest Linux distros I’ve put on this Asus K55A), went from 50 seconds to under 15 seconds.
