    mSATA SSD in a new laptop questions.

    I am getting a Lenovo ideapad y470p and I am thinking about getting an mSATA SSD and using it as the boot drive.

    For drives I have been looking at
    Kingston SSDNow mS100

    OCZ Nocti series

    Intel 310 Series

    Is the OCZ or Kingston model better?
    Is there any reason to go with the intel even though it costs more?

    How much space should Windows 7 Home Premium take up on the drive?

    Re: mSATA SSD in a new laptop questions.

    I have an ASUS Eee slate EP121 Windows 7 tablet that comes with a 64GB OEM only SanDisk mSATA SSD drive:

    ASUS Eee Pad (Eee Slate) EP121-1A010M Tablet PC Intel Core i5 470UM(1.33GHz) 12.1" Wide SVGA 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 64GB SSD HDD Intel HD Graphics

    I've wanted to upgrade the mSATA SSD to a 120GB or 240GB model for some time now so I have been looking too.

    I've heard of some issues with the OCZ Nocti such as BSOD from resume from sleep and other oddities.

    I think the Intel is probably the best bet due to reliability and quality control but you pay for it.

    Micron has a new C400 mSATA which is worth a look see:
