Ahh, an SSD upgrade may come in the future since the recommended ones are exceeding $600

To get the benefit, you don't have to spend over 150 for an 80 GB or so drive.

Just put Windows and programs on it.

Put your data on a standard spinning drive.

This is ridiculous. My most expensive SSD cost $135 - a 90GB Vertex2. My last one from last week was $104 - a 60GB Crucial M4 which is ample for the OS and programs.

I was looking for a SSD with at least 100GB of space because I am a gamer and I tend to download many games onto my laptop.
