The desktop is used by my family and I rarely use it. I know the Intel X-25m is a good quality SSD (Intel SSDs are generally very good quality) and have low failure rates compared to other SSDs (I've read some horror reviews about various OCZ and Gskill SSDs failing within a year)
My main concern isn't necessarily the size, but the quality/stability and the speed. I want a good durability SSD in my laptop.
You could go with either fitting the old SSD or a newer one, the speeds would still be limited by the SATA II port, making the issue more of a space one.
For SSD's, you can't go wrong with Samsung, Crucial or Intel in either speed, endurance and quality. Hell, even my own Mushkin Chronos is a nice SSD for the price. Just do your research before purchasing it, that always helps.
