oh you just think that, once you use one you will hate all mechanical drives. my server at work with 3 15K drives is slower than my SSD in my desktop by a long shot.

T9300 has been installed for about 24 hours now. Haven't really been able to test out how much faster it is compared to the T5550. WEI score for RAM and CPU went from 4.9 to 6.1.

Is there any way to improve the power intake on these? My X9100 is eating up a lot of voltage.

He should “Initialize Disk†and format it first in the Disk Management. The free Partition Manager can help, too.

What kind of games can I run on this? I know I can run Source engine games on it, but I want to run some better games. Also, what can I do about overheating issues? What I do now is just plug it in and remove the battery and put the back two corners on a dvd case each with most of the case not under the laptop.

I have to say they are decent. My 6860 is the only laptop I have owned so far, but even after the hell it's been through... it still manages to perform nicely.

I also had put in a T9300 to give it better performance.
