    Thinking about getting an SSD for my Samsung NC10 netbook (Intel Atom, 2GB ram, Win7). I was looking at the Sandisk ultra as its the cheapest 120GB I can find and I assume that something like the Crucial M4 won't really make much of a difference due to the other limitations of the netbook? Do you think the Sandisk is ok or would you suggest something else?

    All depends on how much storage you need on it. My EEpc has a second hand 64gig c300 in it and it works like a charm.

    I put a Sandisk Ultra 120 in my parents' PC (50p per gigabyte cheesecake), and I can safely report that for casual users on SATA2 it's impossible to notice the difference between this and faster drives. But it is a hell of a lot snappier than a mechanical hard drive, so go for it if cost is an issue.
