Me either.

My issues with SSD is the prices and the sizes are just to small.

I would rather wait the few extra seconds and have a much larger drive not the mention the money I save :)

Until you try it you don't under stand! price per GB is still high end but I will tell you it makes the netbook faster and improves battery life. So it is a win win for the portable market.


Space on the other hand is at a premium. But you can always store your stuff on a larger , slower , less expensive drive!

You know I have an SSD's I just don't care for them :rolleyes:

Being portable and having good battery life is great however thats no good if you have to use an external drive, kinda of defeats the purpose of saving battery life. :lol: But I understand your point.

I have one of these and the benchies are downright horrible in comparison. My writes were in the 60s on CrystalMark for example.
