I have just spruced up my Samsung R70 laptop which was labouring under Win 7 (32bit) and a multitude of hungry programs. Together with more RAM from Crucial (moved from 1GB to 3GB .. max) and the Samsung SSD installed it positively races. I am delighted as to is the R70 which just lusts for as much processing that it can get. However, a few words of advice about SSDs. Do not defrag (Win 7 recognises an SSD and will not allow the MS on-board defrag to get near it), use CCleaner, which I swear by, carefully and sparingly, and if you have a second HDD drive - using a PC - put all your files, music, photos on it as a data drive. There are other minor matters you should be aware of and the net will provide advice on these and on my previous points if you ask the usual how to questions. Before buying do some research. SSDs do not go on forever and the more work they do the shorter their life. Placing files etc on the second drive (datadrive) will save the SSD much effort and extend its life. The message: get SSD, it is worth every penny and you will be surprised how much faster your laptop/PC becomes.But make sure you research their peculiarities as NAND flash memory based equipment not mechanical magnetic based devices which we are used to.
