SSD Question - (NO idea about SSDs)

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so i'm looking at getting an SSD ok for my Laptop and i have no idea where to start.


Few questions
What is TRIM?
Will an SSD increase battery life?
Also i'm TOTALLY NEW to SSD's and have no idea where to start. I probably want to spend under 100 bucks on this. I don't know what size i need..

Also if i want to reuse my old HDD in my CD rom slot how would i do that?

for question 1 and 2:

trim: i don't know technical stuff but more or less its a command sent from the Os when you delete or overwrite files, to tell the ssd to remove stuff.. since ssd need to actually delete the data(not like hdd), this helps the ssd do it, helping keeping performance good.
Its desirable, it needs to e supported by:

-your ssd
-your Os, and with correct drivers
-your motherboard , the sata chipset and drive configuration (non raid)


battery life: yes but it won't be too much, its just that normal hdd laptop driver already do a pretty good job, so it won't be THAT noticeable, maybe 10-30 mins .

Windows 7 with SP1 takes about 10GB(im probably off by a little) 64bit will take a tad more than that. To reuse your old HDD you will more than likely need a 3.5" to 5.25" adaptor like this:

Here is link for list of SSD's in your price range on the 'Egg:

Think that answers the rest of your questions

He's talking about putting it in a lappy.
64gb. is not a lot of space,But he could get an external drive for storage.
