Hey Everyone!
What SSD would you guys recommend for my i7 non RMPB? I only want to spend around $100-$140.

Also, what do I need to open this thing up?

Crucial M4 256 GB or Samsung 840 (non-PRO) 256 GB SSDs can be had for 150 USD, 128 GB can be had for 80 to 100 USD.

The 840 non Pro is a great drive with enough performance, I can recommend it. And yes you need Torx.
