Thanks Erik, that was quite helpful.  Now let's hope the SSD update is smooth sailing!

Re: Differences in the X301 128gb SSD and the Intel 80gb SSD

It's here. I updated my Intel 80 gb SSD last night and it made a BIG difference in performance (we'll see if it lasts though).   Hint:  In order to install the update you need to disable ALL of the passwords on your BIOS.

Re: Differences in the X301 128gb SSD and the Intel 80gb SSD

What were the changes.  I was thinking about downloading and installing tonight but am the type who if all works, I like to leave it alone.

 

Is it much faster

 

OR are you saying you are not having any problems anymore.  I have not had any problems except a small hesitation in the touchpad use but that has all but gone away.  I think my laptop was still indexing the files as it was new with alot of just added software.  All is good now.

Re: Differences in the X301 128gb SSD and the Intel 80gb SSD

Sorry I wasn't clear.  My system is much faster.  As for the crashes, so far so good, but it's too soon to tell.

Just completed my update.  All went well for me, no passwords were ever set.  All seems OK, will repost after using for a day or two.

Re: Differences in the X301 128gb SSD and the Intel 80gb SSD

Have used my X301 for a good bit of the day doing PhotoShop, some spread sheets and just playing on the Internet and I can not say that I notice a big difference.  I wonder if there is a program we can download to text hard drive thruput.  I am very happy but would like to see how fast it is running.

 

There must be a basic speed test we can run that everyone uses here?

Re: Differences in the X301 128gb SSD and the Intel 80gb SSD

Funny that you didn't notice an improvment when I did.   Unfortunately, my computer still freezes and randomly runs at 50% CPU.  When I run process explorer, the system process is at 50% but none of the subsystem files show much activity.  Here's the report:
