  1. Sure, a VAIO running Vista should have a SATA drive unless you updated to Vista on a really old laptop with an IDE drive.
  2. So it has a 120 gig serial ata hard drive currently so i want to replace with the same size whats a good SSD for this?

    Sony Vaio VGN-SZ230P
  3. While you only have a SATA II connector, I would still use a Samsung 830 or Crucial M4, but if you find another good brand significantly cheaper those would be fine too (like a Vertex 3 Agility or the like). Take a look at Tom's SSD hierarchy and comments: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/buy-ssd-recommendation,3255.html
  4. I know the laptop probably isnt worth it but i think i will get the samsung 830 120gig its on amazon for $99.95 right now. Thanks for you help...
  5. You'll love it! I put an SSD in my old Dell and it makes it feel really snappy. And it reduces the power draw so your battery might last a little longer. Put your old hard drive in an external USB enclosure and you have a backup system. Good luck!
