I have an old Compaq V5201US
Product Specifications HERE
I intend to get a new desktop in about a year, but for now, I want to speed up my laptop and make it more rugged. I am considering an upgrade to a Small SSD drive like the $100 OCZ 30gb
My question is this: Would a new SSD be compatible with my old laptop Motherboard?
Would I see the full extent of the speed benefits of the SSD, or would the motherboard-HD interface limit the functioning of the new drive?
Do you think the upgrade is worth it? After I get a new desktop in a year, I would intend to continue using this laptop as a portable computer for taking notes, lectures, internet, etc, but would do most beefy computing/entertainment on the (future) desktop.
