I believe part of the problem may be that i'm using a sata 2 ssd in a sata 1 laptop, but i can't figure out why it isn't running the least bit faster. Any ideas?
Most likely that is a bottleneck. But on the other hand, it all depends on what kind of performance increase you expect. The system may boot a bit faster and software should load a bit quicker in theory. A browser is only going to render a page as fast as your internet speed allows, and games are mostly dependant on CPU and GPU performance.
The Acer Aspire 5517 is not a particularly high performance laptop and is getting on a bit now...2009....AMD Athlon at 1.6 GHz and budget AMD Mobility Radeon shared memory graphics.
