Default SSD drive for my other Dell laptop? - 12-29-2008, 07:05 PM

While waiting for my Dell Mini9 and 64GB runcore drive, I decided to run the disk speed test on my current laptop, the Dell Inspiron E1505 with 7200 rpm 80GB disk.
I was surprised to see the Read/Write was 30/28 MB/s.
This was much slower than I had anticipated since my desktop machine with the same test scored 103/100 MB/s.
Now I'm considering getting a faster disk for my E1505.
I see a lot of SSD drives out there but not sure which one would work in this machine, if any.
Does any have a guidance or experience in putting faster drives in one of these other Dell model laptops?

Intel X25M 80GB. Not cheap, but VERY fast.

MyDigitalDiscount has quite a selection
I googled the Intel x25m, I only found one place selling it, and it was $559.. Maybe you just need a higher RPM/more modern drive for that laptop?


Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED

Amazon has the Intel X25-M for $499.99.
