  1. Did a quick search and didn't notice anyone here using a solid state drive... So, I was wondering if anyone is. If so, share your experiencesǃ I'm using a Crucial M4 SSD which is 512 GB. The first thing I noticed was a great boot time. I can boot from off to my desktop in 35 seconds and all the background apps are loaded within the 40-45 second mark. Now, I'm sure there are faster...but this is the best experience I've had from anything I've ever owned personally before. I haven't tried shaking my computer to the point of disrupting the hard drive...nor do I plan to do it intentionally. However, I was running a transfer the other day and had to walk to the office with my computer running, lest I have to redo two previous hours of work and then wait again. No problems whatsoever. General speeds in running applications have been either faster compared to my last computer, although, I have no specific benchmarking comparisons there. But here are a couple things that I ran on the current Y400 with CrystalDiskMark and SiSoftware Sandra 2013 SP3. CrystalDiskMark (based on 5 tests) Read (MB/s) Sequentialː 518.1 Random 512KBː 438.6 Random 4KBː& 21.81 Random 4KB (QD 32)ː 198.8 Write (MB/s) Sequentialː 261.6 Random 512KBː 263.6 Random 4KBː 71.78 Random 4KB (QD 32)ː 212.3 SiSoftware Sandra 2013 SP3 File System Bandwidth Analysing...
