It has two 320GB HDDs, now before I make the plunge I wanted to ask a forum I trust if it will be possible to switch out one of the 320GB HDDs for a SSD boot drive.
Because I do not want to mess around and end up ruining my laptop once I buy it obviously, I also have very little real world expierence with laptop repair. Even though I have replaced other laptop hard drives with success. I am just worried about compatibility and do not want to mess up the settings.

Sure, I don't see a problem doing it as long as you get a SSD made for a laptop (1.8 inch I believe).
