Yeah, that looks like a huge improvement and @ around $100 I would double my space. I will have to consider this for the future for sure. TY again! As of now I might as well get the warranty drive. I spent, what I thought, an hour on the phone with Dell. They are sending me a new drive. (And the WinXP install disk because I lost it.)
They sent me instructions too: (lol)
So, now I'm wondering about looking at that old drive. Is there a cable to interface that connection on the drive to a SATA or better yet USB or something like that? That is a PCIe connector on that drive, right? If there is, and that drive is readable, I could get some files off of there. Thats if it is cost effective, because, like I said, it might not even be readable.

There is no cable. The drive is a small card that plugs into a MiniPCIe connector. It is NOT, however, a real MiniPCIe slot - the wiring is incompatible. As I noted above, you can buy a USB adapter specially designed for these SSD cards. But if your Mini can't read it, these won't either.
