The drive i have now is a 250 gb 5400 rpm. I was looking at the hybrid that John posted the link too. I don't really feel like spending the extra money for the larger SSD. I don't do a lot of intensive stuff on this laptop so I will probably just go with the faster standard drive. I have been receiving hints from my son that he would be willing to take this laptop if i wanted to upgrade. grin

Thanks for all the input.

Common sense and deodorant are a lot alike. People who need it the most don't use it.
