Buying new SSD

I have a Toshiba L505 64bit with windows 7 and 8gb of Ram .

I was thinking of getting an SSD , maybe a samsung 830 .(256gb)

I have approximately 84% free space . I do not store videos or photos , just run my web site and make daily changes .

Any thoughts would be appreciated !!

If you can afford to get a 120 GB SSD you will not be sorry. You can put Win 7 and your programs on it. It will give you a big boost in the speed of opening the programs.

I would definitely go with the Samsung 830 but as you do not need a large drive a 128gb would be adequate. Ive got the Samsung 830 128gb and am only using about half of it with apps and OS
