    This laptop has slow 5400rpm Toshiba MQ02ABD100H. What can I do to improve hard drive performance or speed using intel rapid storage?

    A strange question, replace with something, which is faster.

    It will definitely be SSD for the better. Isn't it time for the hardware industry to gradually face out HDD?

    +1 I agree, an SSD is the best choice.
    As long as 5400 rpm laptop drives are cheaper, they'll keep using them
