Wow. Very quick! SSD's make all the difference. Wish I could get an SSD in my system as easy as you can with a desktop!

This restart time is a little slower than usual but OK for a normal HDD.

Look how annoying it is to get an SSD into my laptop. Not a case of undo 2 screws and slide it out like my old one.

Wow! I can't believe that Dell doesn't tell you about those two cables that are connected to the touchpad. Laptops are kind of complicated to service.

You were lucky - your BIOS cooperated. On my HP desktop the BIOS needed more than 25ms. The best I could ever get was in the 40's.

Did you look for a BIOS update from HP? I updated my BIOS just fine. It takes about 5 minutes and then you reboot your pc.

No I did not. But in the meantime I gave this HP to a friend. Got a Dell (which I don't like).

It is just not well organized inside. I had a hard time to fumble the SSD into it. It is their top of the line (XPS 8300), but it has only 4 Sata ports on the mobo. And except for video editing (with the i7) it is not really any faster than my old HP.

Unfortunately I could not upgrade the HP CPU - the AMD 5600+ was the maximum. Else I would have kept it. But I do a lot of video encoding and editing. So I wanted more CPU power.

My HP only has 4 sata ports, also, but that's all I need. I have 1 dvd-rw drive, 2 1tb hard drives, and 1 Crucial M4 ssd. My HP will do all I need it to do for probably the next 5 to 6 years. My HP isn't top of the line. It was a budget pc when I bought it. Then, I upgraded from the integrated graphics to the Sapphire Radeon HD 5670 512mb. I also upgraded the psu, added a second 1tb hard drive, and added this ssd.

LOL, I did exactly the same upgrades in my HP. Antec PSU, 9500GT and OCZ Vertex2. Too bad I got stuck with the CPU. Would have loved to put one of those AM3 CPUs in, but I did not have an AM3 socket.

I still have a picture for when I took it apart.

Here are some before and after pics of my pc (note: this doesn't include the ssd): Disregard the blue circle on the after pic
