It's taking more time

I have downloaded the data, but the volume of data (especially the bid data) has grown so much that every time I pull an analysis, I lose interest before the results come in.

I'm still pottering with it, but I'm thinking I'm going to need an upgrade in computer before I can resume my regular scheduling.

Just one nagging thought from my past. Working with the data downloads are data (disk) intensive. As such, I'm not sure that only upgrading the processor will do the trick, and I don't know many laptops that have substantially faster harddrives (faster than 5,400 rpm, that is).

So it may take some time before regular analysis resumes.

HO, you can get 7200 RPM laptop hard drives for instance here:,200_RPM/c3/2644
(note: This is the first site that came up for laptop hard drive, you should look around for cheaper drives).
