Anyway, it was for my laptop, and while it was a bitch to fit it's made a difference. However I still find the laptop a bit slow doing things like surfing etc. It's a dell but I installed a clean Win7 install and the drivers are up to date. TRIM and full write caching are enabled. It's just slow at moderate/heavy browsing and even sometimes waking up and switching tabs.
It's a first get Core i3 (2.2ghz I think) and has 4gb ram (3 available or so). Any tips? I'm thinking this is the best I will get from this but my previous experience of going HDD>SSD on my desktop suggests it should be a fair bit faster now. Perhaps it's just a crappy SSD? 120GB OCZ Technology Vertex Plus. Even my Kingston SSD100 seemed quicker in my desktop my hazy memory suggests.
No idea, my brother is using a 1st gen i3 laptop too, and somehow feels more sluggish than my POS laptop. Install 64bit OS? I am shooting in the dark here.
