Further upgrades of my hp-compaq-6910p-laptop

For further details on how I have upgraded this already to in 2014, read part one of this story.

So what else I have done to this to pimp it even further?

-Well, I have tossed the 2ndary travel battery and the main battery as both died on the same day, with a bigger main battery with 6600 mAh instead of 4400 mAh.

-and I have removed the b/g/n wireless NIC with a Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260  PCI Express Half Mini Card

-The Samsung 840 Basic Series has been exchanged by a

Crucial SSD

simply because Samsung just this month released a fix for the problem that the drives get slow with time. when I have contacted their support last year they said there won't be any firmware update to fix this despite being promised a year earlier.

Also I will exchange the multiwrite DVD writer with a DVD-writer and BD reader combo drive. 
Most internal drives are SATA but I found an IDE drive to fit: Sony NEC Optiarc BD-ROM/DVD/CD RW L BC-5500A .
It's in the post waiting to arrive to me
