Yes, this was a very prudent move. :cautious:(y)

Are you considering to add an SSD by any chance? Just wondering.
thanks for the advice! Yep it's my next step, a SSD should improve my PC and how to run my Apps :D

Why did you replace Bitwarden with Lastpass?
i'm testing it and for now is a great app. Bitwarden is great as well

Nice no frills config. As mentioned, try to look into a SSD. It will make your browsing experience so different AKA faster..
Thanks for sharing. :)
Yes, i'm planning get one only for the O.S. Thank you for the advice mate ;)
