GUYS about the ssd drive, ive got a 120gb and now wish i got the 180 gb, after you instal windows and a few programs youll see a 120 drive go down to half capacity in no time at all.
SSD drives need some extra space to work at their best - they dont do well when full so get extra capacity if you can. In hindesight i wouldve been better off getting an intel 330 180gb instead of the intel 520 120gb.

Hope this helps

I'm sure there's guides out there on how to shrink the OS when installing. I wish I could get you a link but I'm not home.

I hear you. I still need to buy a Hard Drive but the one I'm using now has everything I love on it. I'm slowly waiting until the day I have to buy one to use my laptop again.

for the main one, if you don't use sleep mode, run CMD as administer and type "powercfg h off" and enter. That will free up as much space as you have RAM.
