Budget 1.8" SSD for old laptop recommendations?

Hi All,

I'm looking for a 64gb SSD to put in a small, very nice but old Dell Inspiron Latitude X1. It has a 50-pin interface, but I believe I can get around that with some adapters, but I assume the basic drive needs to be IDE/PATA (forgive my ignorance here)? Will run Win7 on it.

What would you recommend that wouldn't break the bank? I guess the speed of the cpu and the interface/bus speeds would limit me in some sense too.


Cheers,

  1. 1. Usually, the adapters will not work.

    2. Mind listing full specs?

    3. Virtually any good SSD based on the SF1200,etc are going to be bottlenecked by IDE.

    I would seriously consider if doing something like this is worth it. Imo, you are probably better off with a good 7200.12 based 7200rpm HDD
