My System Specs

Default

This one is the one you want:

Newegg.ca - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE60G 2.5" 60GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

For advise, just make sure you are set to AHCI and install windows 7. Trust me you will not regret it. I think the SSD is the best thing for a notebook. Since you are always starting and restarting and waking them you will notice the difference right away. Very much worth it.

While true you can get more space with the straight hdd option you will not regret going to the SSD. As for the firmware thing that is the first I have heard and really you don't need to upgrade the firmware. Some people advise it but I have installed many of these at work and I just don't have the time to go around and update firmware yet they are all very pleased with the performance.
