The first question I have is about the connector... it says mSATA, is this compatible with "normal" SATA and if not, does anyone know if these drives come with an adapter?

Also, general opinions on the drive and alternatives are welcome. I'm considering it as a boot/software drive for Linux since the 30GB model happens to be the cheapest SSD I could find and I don't need any more since I'll be using a HDD for my home folder (and var & tmp).

I'm buying from here if you can/want to suggest a more reliable or otherwise better hard drive (capacity excluded since 30GB will be more than enough for me) - I really wouldn't want to pay more than $150 and I'd like to keep it as low as possible.

Obviously you need to find that adapter on an Australia online store on your own (it is not included in that SSD). Best to get regular SATA version. Get that M4 if you can, settle no less than Vertex 3. Anything less than that IMO is wasting money. It is your choice of course.
