Default Just bought a Intel-X25-M 120GB Internal Serial ATA II Solid State Hard Dr - 03-14-2011, 11:19 PM

I just bought a Intel-X25-M Mainstream 120GB Internal Serial ATA II Solid State Hard Drive for my wifes Mini 1012, hope it speeds it up because she is looking at my Alenware M17 duel 5870 monster, she can't have it. I will admit the Mini is painfully slow loading up and just getting to the Internet takes hrs. For $260.00 it had better be a little faster. Is there anything special as far as drivers etc.... that I will need to get this to work in the Mini?

The Intel X25-M is a nice SSD, though there are some newer ones that are faster. I have a 160GB model in my desktop PC. You should not need anything special in the way of drivers.
