Solid State ThinkPad Drive
There is no downside to these solid state drives except a current limitation on the size of the drive. The start up and shut down of the machine is so much faster with a solid state drive it's well worth the additional cost when compared to the plummeting cost of a garden variety drive. The time you will save waiting for start up, shut down, and programs to load is well, well worth it. It's also a no brainer to install on your own. Fits perfectly into the ThinkPad hard drive slot. Could not recommend this item more highly. Unless you need more space than this technology currently affords, pay the additional sums and don't look back.

256GB SSD rocks!
Strengths: Storage, Software compatibility, Durability, Warranty, Support, Security Features, Build Quality
In my T61p using Windows 7 RC (64-bit) and 8GB of RAM, this SSD gives almost twice the throughput of the 7200RPM hard drive (per PassMark) it replaced.
