Have a T500 currently.
The W510 seems to be louder than I'd like, based on notebookcheck tests, and based on forum posts
W510= 33-34 dba idle , 38-40 dba load
(compared to T500 1-2 decibels louder in idle, and 4-6 decibels louder under load)
Seeing how an average HDD is tested to put out about 31+ decibels, switching to a SSD should reduce the total system sound by 31+ decibels.
So, replacing the W510's HDD, with a SSD, should reduce the sound to a total of about:
2-4 dba idle , 7-9 dba load
anyone with experience with the W510 and SSD, or any other laptop changing to SSD
