    R3 2200G OR I3 7100

    Just get a basic 2200G system and you should be fine. Core 2 Duos are still more than fine for Office work when paired with an SSD, but I get what you mean.
  3. You don't have to reinstall, but it's best to do so.

    WTF is this?!

    Seems like you just have a borked Windows install. Make a flash drive and reinstall Windows.

    What should i upgrade my cpu or gpu

    We'll need to know your budget and location (for currency). Ideally you should upgrade both.

    what would slow down a laptop ?

    It's been my experience that SSDs are the way to go.

    what would slow down a laptop ?

    Windows 10 and a mechanical drive = horrendously slow in my experience. Put an SSD in it and you should be good.

    So, strange idea for a NAS

    That's not a good idea. I don't think that adapter thing looks too good, and you're limiting yourself with bandwidth. No, it only has a USB 2.0 interface and 10/100 ethernet. Useless for a NAS in my opinion.

    Moving OS from HDD to SDD

    Just reinstall Windows on the SSD. You won't have to deal with bloatware then.

    What are scratch disks?

    It's something people dump footage or files onto to work from. SSDs are usually used as scratch disks to eliminate disk bottlenecks.

    Which Thinkpad?

    Don't forget about the touchpad. The X220 has a hilariously small touchpad. It does still have the TrackPoint though.

    Is RAID 0 SATA SSDs Still Risky?

    Using RAID 0 at all is risky. If one drive dies, all your data is gone. Just using an SSD doesn't change that. It's still RAID 0 and you'd still have to backup a lot more.
  13. You can use the video card just fine. As for Windows, you'll want to do a clean installation.

    Will it Run?

    Ye, that would work. There's no reason why it wouldn't.
  15. That's your issue. You only have a 10/100 capable router. Even if the client devices are 10/100/1000 capable, you're limited by your router.
