According to the review I read on pureoverclock they say the stuttering issue in their tests is no longer there.

The only SSD drives in the 64gig range that memory express seem to have in stock are the OCZ, Patriot and the Kingston, with the Kingston being ~ $100 cheaper, that's fairly significant even if it is a bit slower than the rest...

I can go with the Kingston 128gig for almost the same price as the others in the 64gig flavor...

Why is that? Is there a noticable real world speed difference between the Kingston and the barefoot drives?

I ended up picking up the Corsair x128 as they were out of the OCZ. Nice thing from what I read though, updating the firmware on the Corsair drive you don't lose you data where as on the OCZ apparently you do...

I've got a question for you.. How did you find your motherboard drivers etc to install, if you want to install a different OS on your laptop?

Find them on the manufacturer's website.

I swapped this wednesday the 5200 rpm HDD from my Inspiron 6400 with a Gskill 64Gb SSD. What a difference.
