    I don't even have my laptop yet.... =)

    Well....just got my Momentus XT in and now having second thoughts.

    Thinking about returning it for an Intel X25-M 80gb.

    Looking at newegg they have what seems to be 3 of the same drive. I know one is OEM and one is not.

    This is seems to be the newest one and is out of stock. Dont feel like waiting...

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...167027&cm_re=intel_x25-_-20-167-027-_-Product

    Then these two options which seem like the same drive:

    1) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...167016&cm_re=intel_x25-_-20-167-016-_-Product

    2) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...167023&cm_re=intel_x25-_-20-167-023-_-Product

    Should I wait until the latest one? Whatever that means...new firmware? Or Should I be okay to get one of the other two? They all have the same specs....

    Sometime newegg loves to confuse!!

    this is a wise idea my friend,

    the momentus xt is good but remember, it only has 4gb ssd...and everything cannot fit in that 4gb.

    SSD + HDD combo is the best for speed / storage combo.


    PS. i have the momentus XT , i dont like it personally, but for some im sure its a great disk.

    the ssd is the way to go, no heat on intels and a less battery consumption.

    if you install a second hdd in optical bay it will only decrease battery life by 5-10 mins at most.
