Hey guys I recently purchased an Acer Aspire Timelinex AS3830T-6849. The specs are:
Core i5 2430M / 2.4 GHz - Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit - 4 GB RAM - 640 GB HDD - 13.3" CineCrystal wide 1366 x 768 / HD - Intel HD Graphics 3000
I got the Corsair Force Series 3 ssd 60gb drive for my desktop quite recently. Its been approximately 2 months. And I just can't get used to using hdd's anymore as primary O/S drive. So I want to replace the 640gb with an ssd. Now my question is, is there any issue I should be concerned with, with this specific brand of laptop? I was planning to put the Corsair Force 3 120gb in it. Please answer as I am not too sure about this. Thank you. :(

You might just want to use SSD Caching.

Well that wont help me much as i can only put in one hard drive in my laptop and it needs to be an ssd drive. This caching technology will only be useful if i was using iton my desktop alongside regular hdd.

My bad: I misread your post.
Unfortunately, you are asking a very specific question...
Your best bet is usually with Intel or Crucial. If you are on a budget, Kingston drives seem to be very robust, albeit slow...
