It's a $500 Lenovo G505s. Should I put an SSD inside or keep the 1TB 5400 rpm drive? SSDs are pretty expensive and I'm not sure if it's worth it.

A SSD is hands down the best quality of life upgrade you can make on a PC. Get one, you won't regret it.

Yes I put a 256 GB SSD into my A8 laptop and it worked perfect.

I have a Lenovo A10 (different code to yours) the hard drive is horrendously bad... I have never done a upgrade myself but I heard it isn't to bad plus there is tons of videos on how too.

What cards yu got inside? Mine is in the sig.
A10 ('@2.3) HD 7600G & HD 7670M 8gb ram W8.

My A8 came with a 8550G+8750m 2GB VRAM and it has 12 gb ram since I upgraded it. The CPU is a quad-core 2.1 ghz with a boost feature that makes it go to 2.8 ghz

No card, just the A10's 8650G.

Well, I just dropped $345 on a 500GB Samsung evo and $13 on a USB to SATA converter so I can clone the OS. I hope this was money well spent...

How can I tell if it has a boost? As 2.3 is nice.. but moar is better.
