What are you talking about... An SSD is one of the best bang for buck improvements as long as the rest of your components are decent.

Good idea. I am thinking in replacing my optical drive with hdd too, on my XPS 16
SSD is too expensive now. Maybe the prices will come down a bit.

........Good luck with your Laptop. I hope you got a good one. I had one but it was a nightmare with it. Ended up sending back. Bad experience with Asus. They do make good stuff, if you pick a good one!
If you do not have 9 cel battery, (or is not designed) that lifts the laptop up a bit, like my XPS, than you have to get a cooling pad, if play games.
