    I guess that explains why you couldn't spare the time to use Google. I'm not sure how you expected to read the responses without turning off the TV, though.

    They use spellcheck when they write books so they are easier to read and understand. You should use spellcheck to write your threads so they are easier to read and understand.

    As for your question, SSD are a ton faster and the best way to speed up your computer but they are also very expensive $300 for a 80GB Intel. In fact thats what I'm doing right now, replacing my failing hard drive on my 3 year old MB with the Intel one.

    spell check on a forum is not that important to me..............
    but I have been looking into that SSD from intel and I would want the 160GB but the cost for that is over $500 and thats not something I want to do with the macbook I own now. If the price point on it was not so high then I would consider it.

    For the budget conscious, NewEgg has the Kingston V 64gb for around $140 plus a $30 mail-in rebate (so end price $110). Great bang for your buck, I have one in my Dell Mini (had 3 ibook drives fail in 2 years, decided I'm never using a traditional laptop drive again) and it's reliable, much cooler than the stock 160gb 5400, and a lot faster, but it's definitely not a performance drive. Then again, I doubt I would see much of a difference in a Dell Mini with a high end one, so...

    NewEgg also has the OCZ Vertex 30gb on sale for $99 after rebate right now, a great buy if you just need a system drive and have a server/storage solution. I've heard nothing but good things about those, though yes, the new gen of Intels are apparently the top performers.
