Hope that someone follows this chain.
I have the following setup:
- 2776-LFG X-301 with SAMSUNG MMCQE28G8MUP-0VA 128 GB SSD drive;
And this has worked like charm, even the OEM installed XP pro SP3 ( with some housekeeping, naturally ).
However, the April 8 DEADline for XP looming in horizon, it looks like time a good time to upgrade to Windows 7 professional ( or ultimate or ... ). Despite having to do clean install and trouble of trying to find Office 2003 ( instead of the current Office 2007 - yes, I would like to downgrade in order to be able to open older office files without special tricks or using my T41 or T60 first to search and open those older files ).
Seems like it will take 20 gigs from the precious disk space so maybe this is the time to upgrade the ssd, too.
After having read this and some other forums about this, it looks like most bang for buck would be from this:
1. Crucial CT240M500SSD3 interne SSD 240GB (256MB Cache, SATA, MLC 20nm)
2. Adapter - the one from Alaretec (?) mentioned here is out of stock at Amazon so was wondering if this would fit instead: Syba mSATA SSD to 2.5-Inch SATA Adapter (SY-ADA40050)
Or - would anyone have an extra fitting SSD ( > 240 GB capacity ) and Windows 7 ( or even Vista installed ) with some life in it ?
...and since I have only 2 GB RAM in one slot, I could also fill the other slot with 2... 4 GB RAM - any recommendations here?
