    i just bought this SSD about 1year and 9month old for about 123,39USD / 91,38euro.

    Intel X25-M G2 80GB SSD (34nm NAND) - SSDSA2MH080G2C1

    it will come with the newest firmware i got the seller to update the firmware for me.

    i am actually excited about it, bcs it's my first SSD and 80gb should be fine i think ^^

    maybe u should upgrade to Windows 7 and get the Trim Support u can always go Professional instead of Ultimate there u can still get rid of Run As Administrator and the UAC, that's why i am on Ultimate plus i got them for like a really nice price bcs i bought a good bunch of them not just for myself but family too.

    There's no reason to get 7 Vista works perfectly fine without trim because of intels garbage collection.

    I got both vista copys for free when MS was giving them away :).

    Congrats! I bought the same SSD around 2 years ago, still going strong for my main OS drive and a few games.
    These X25-M from Intel were pretty reliable, and the kings of performance for quite while.
