In other words, that's just an old myth. I don't see any ground to choose JFS or BtrfS over ext4 either, until/unless some special use case of which OP didn't make us aware of IIRC.

FWIW, at least on SSDs JFS is in many use cases significantly faster than ext4.

FWIW the Inspiron 15xx are hot running, you'll go through hdd's faster than average. The HP Evo n610 was another.

Hi,

I have a Dell 1501 and no such problem with it for temperature damage to 'HDD' while using a spinning disk. The Dell 1501 now has a 'SSD'. I do use Laptop coolers for all my Laptops to aid in stability and prevent any potential heat issues.

@op You can replace the 'hdd' with a like unit or just get a reasonable cost 'SSD'. This will speed things up for the older Dell Laptop.

You can look at post # 368 for some helpful information. Other information within that thread for 'SSD' setup.

Another useful theread; http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...an-ssd-925789/

Hope this helps.
