thanks man! i was really hesitant because of the short warranty on a refurbed SSD. considering that the corsair force series (sandforce) has a decent record, i thought the odds are with me, so i bit the bullet and spent the $120 dollars. cmonnn it's hard to not buy 1$/GB SF drive!!!

it's been a couple weeks now, and everything is running so smoothly. now i can forget about hibernate, and just shutdown super fast.

the 2nd of many upgrades i will bring to my lappy (first being the 98Whr OEM battery).

next, backlit. after... GPU/CPU. i am very happy the GPU is upgradable.
or.. maybe a 1.8" HD. i found an microSATA 1.8" HD space and slot on the bottom of my motherboard. crazy business.

i guess i will do RAM last.
I think you have already done the best upgrade you can do. And good luck with the SSD. I love mine and won't be without one again.



I'll Second that

It is, I had some help from Harry Potter and Hogwarts magic.

In that case I'm disappointed. I would have thought that Harry could do better.

I love my new Rig, especially with almost no start-up programs.

I got a restart time of 73 seconds. Seems to me it's counting the BIOS time as well. But yeah on a year old Windows 7 with countless software installs and uninstalls I was expecting a bit better but oh well SSD is next in the list!

If you used the file from this site for restart time, it measures the shutdown time, POST and loading windows time.

There is a free program called bootracer that just measures startup time.
