    Its A No brainer

    Hi M8

    Ive just upgraded my Velocity Raptor 150GB to a Crucial M225 128GB and its the most impressive upgrade I have done in a long time.

    The SSD pee's on the Velocity Raptor period.

    Lots of reviews out there for SSD's with Velocity Raptor inc in the benchmarks amd it leaves it for dust.

    Not a lot more I can say really except you wont regret getting the SSD.

    Regards

    Coolur

    If you can, try to get a 128 gig for OS plus updates and main applications and games. A lot faster than a 64 gig.

    Absolutely go for the SSD, you'll also get less heat and zero noise (It's so weird to have a completely silent laptop!). The 128GB Crucial M225 still is the best value-for-money choice atm.

    Do both like me.

    SSD's for main drive and a velociraptor for games.

    Benefit of the velociraptors is the write speed which can be slower on SSD's and the size advantage.

    Read speed in Raid with 2 * SSD's is awesome.
