I've been researching upgrades for my grandmother's laptop (HP Pavilion dv5150us) over the past couple weeks. I got 4gb of 667MHz DDR2 for $20 off Craigslist and am now eyeballing the Vertex Plus R2. She's still running the stock 5400RPM SATA drive. I know the Vertex Plus R2 is SATAII, though I'm not sure if it will be bottle-necked by a SATA port. Realistically, all she does is browse and write a text document here and there. She's definitely not a speed demon but if a Vertex Plus R2 can increase her user experience then it's certainly worth $30.
