I picked up an ASUS G71 off of eBay the other day for $250 shipped, I needed a laptop that had some gaming potential for some trips I would be taking this summer. It came with an extra battery and a cooling pad which was nice.

I have on OCZ vertex III SSD that I want to throw into it but, according to some of my research, the laptop may only have Sata 1.5 support, I know that it would work, but how slow would it be.

Also, I couldn't find out if the laptop only ran at Sata 1.5 speeds (The HDD's it comes with are only Sata 1.5) or if the chipset itself only worked at Sata 1.5

Thanks in advance!
