I've heard good about the Intels as far as performance goes. Mine is the OCZ 
Technology Vertex Series 60GB. They sold it for 166 Swiss Francs (should be 
about the same amount in US $ at the time).

If you tell me what sort of benchmarks you'd like I'd be happy to run them.

I use Close:Minimise,Maximise - I never got used to Microsofts close button on 
the top right (I was an OS/2 user...).

I found out you can completely kill the touchpad in there too, get back the 
Trashcan on the desktop...

And I've made a full backup id the SSD with Image for Linux, so I can 
experiment  at will and quickly put back a fresh working copy when I've 
screwed up everything.

What a wonderful world :))
