Just received an old 4GB X200 tablet with Windows 10 Pro via eBay to use for browsing. I've found it quite fast and love the keyboard. Old tech, but better than a lot of newer equipment. And at $79 delivered, no way to lose, and it is very similar to my favorite T420.
As it uses a 2.5" HDD, i am thinking about switching to an SSD (as I have with my T420). I understand that the X200 uses Sata 2 and was wondering how others have found performance when doing this with an X200.
I've found no problems with drivers so far, but are there more desirable ones than the Microsoft ones in Windows 10 for graphics, etc.?

Do I need to do a BIOS update. Mine is 7WET36WW (2.07 )
Yes, it's a good practice to update your system's BIOS to latest before upgrading any hardware components.

Finally installed an SSD and the speed certainly improved, but the older processor just gets overwhelmed at times.
Just received a pristine X201 with an i5/M560/2.67 GHz processor and switched the SSD to it. Very fast! This is the best 12" laptop I've seen so far. Compact, good keyboard, good battery life, etc.
