Upgrading your notebook's legacy hard drive to a new, fast SSD is a substantial upgrade that makes good sense for a number of reasons.  First, Solid State Drives offer orders of magnitude higher performance under certain conditions, with blazingly fast random access times.  They also produce much less heat versus a standard 2.5-inch notebook hard drive and are virtually immune to shock and vibration trauma that will send your old spinning hard drive to an early grave.

In this HotHardware Video Spotlight, we show you how to upgrade your existing notebook hard drive, to a new, fast SSD as well as how to quickly migrate your data for absolute minimal downtime.

Anyone know of any SSD with storage capacity in the triple digits that are going on sale or will be a worthy investment over Black Friday/Cyber Monday?

I'm on an issued Fujitsu laptop with a 320gb 5200RPM HD... and at the moment this machine is all I can use for classes, every day use, gaming and a little photo and video editing.

The increased start up times would be so nice transitioning from class to class

Maybe something around 128GB for $80 or less would be ideal
