IIRC the TS32G was a JMircon based SSD. Unfortunately, the only "pata" SSDs I have come across recently are all the mini pci-e style. Pata really is a dead format when it comes to SSDs. TBH I dont know If I would recommend a JM based SSD nowadays. BUT if you do go for it, there are ways of keeping it fast('ish).
Some have had good luck with "Tony-Trim" two part plan on getting back lost performance.....Though nothing is 100% guaranteed to work as some other peeps say it made things worse.....YMMV

BUT is it worth the cost of upgrading to an SSD when their maybe other bottlenecks in the laptop? Only you can answer that question!
