    Default Laptop Help - Processor and SSD

    right im looking to upgrade the laptop a bit. i currently have the highlighted processor.

    im probably going to upgrade to the T6600, would luv the T9600 but its a little out the price range at the moment. been checking prices etc and the t6600 seems to be a pretty good price.

    currently got 4gb of ram, the laptop can take a max of 8gb

    t9600 - 6M Cache, 2.80 GHz, 1066 MHz
    P8700 - 3M Cache, 2.53 GHz, 1066 MHz
    p8600 3M Cache, 2.40 GHz, 1066 MHz
    P7450 3M Cache, 2.13 GHz, 1066 MHz
    T6600 2M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz
    T6500 2M Cache, 2.10 GHz, 800 MHz
    T4300 1M Cache, 2.10 GHz, 800 MHz
    T4200 1M Cache, 2.00 GHz, 800 MHz
    T3000 - 1M Cache, 1.80 GHz, 800 MHz


    im also possibly interested in a 64gb SSD, but am not 100% whats classed as fast and whats not.

    anyone help or got any views?

    I'm currently running a pair of OCZ Vertex 2's in raid 0 in my desktop, boots 7 Ultimate in around 15 seconds. They support the trim command so pretty much look after themselves.

    Laptop wise; I would consider buying an i series processor, they are take the piss fast compared to Pentiums.

    unless you have a magical raid controller that passes TRIM your not actually using TRIM on your drives FYI

    and I am partial to the Intel SSD's... we use them for caching on SQL servers at work

    Yeah, I like the OCZ Vertex 2's as well. They are plenty fast and cheap... well, for an SSD. And yes, I series processors rock. One of my customers just bought an i5 core laptop. It's very nice.

    If you can afford it, I'd go for the Vertex 2 series. Their write speed is faster.
