Ever since I got my first SSD, I have been in love with them. Now I put them in all of my current favorite laptops (and move the HDs to my backup machines). Though benchmarks may make a big deal about the differences between brands, ANY SSD will blow the benchies off of a regular HDs in day to day use.
Right now I'm a big fan of Samsung SSDs - for their good GB/ price ratio. As you can see from my sig - I have 3 of them running in 2 different notebooks. Good luck!
