I have made a comparison between the default Seagate Momentus 320GB 7200RPM and a new SSD Intel X25-M 160GB. This made a huge difference on a Lenovo ThinkPad T410, and could possible be worth the upgrade?

You've done another great comparo-review there! I believe that the average read speed is more important than the burst speed, though, so those are the numbers that I look for. SSD is the way to go...if you can afford it. Thanks again for the article!

I have made a screencast showing how a 7200RPM loads applications vs. a SSD drive loading the same applications. This truly shows the power of a SSD drive.
