ASUS Laptop UL20 Series UL20A-A1 Intel Core 2 Duo SU7300 (1.30 GHz) 2 GB Memory 250 GB HDD Intel GMA 4500MHD 12.1
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Reviews for this unit are excellent all around.

(couldn't leave this field blank - had to write something)

Cons: As of this writing Newegg is listing the resolution at 1280x800. The correct display res is 1366x768.

Asus Specs link:

Other Thoughts: Just a heads up as that may be a deal breaker for some.

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Adds pep to my system. Came with FW 1.4 installed. Lots of info in the Support Forum (also a con)

Cons: Lots of info on the forum support site, BUT YOU have to weed through it. Ultimately glad it was there though. Expensive for the size.

Other Thoughts: Glad I got some extra money for Christmas to purchase this. It's running in a Compaq CQ60-417DX. (my first laptop to tinker with) It came with a 2.2 celeron, but I've since changed that to a 2.4 Core2Duo and I've obviously added this SSD. The Windows Exp for the HDD jumped to 7.2. I also ran HDTune:

Transfer Rate:
Min: 136.4 MB/Sec
Max: 193.0 MB/Sec
AVG: 185.2 MB/Sec

Access Time: 0.1ms
Burst Rate: 151.8 MB/Sec
CPU Usage: 8.9%

Real world experience: definitely faster than what was in there, but would I recommend it? Probably not at this price point and for this application. Still, if you have the cash to burn then its definitely worth a look towards the future. I plan to rip it back out and drop it into my iCore7 setup to compare.

OCZ Vertex Series 2.5
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Single best upgrade available tomake the biggest impact on your system.

Cons: Been watching this for quite a few months and the price just keeps going up....?????

Other Thoughts: it's gone up about 50 bucks in the past six months
