Samsung NP550P5C and Samsung 830 SSD? Tags: SSD Samsung Laptops _Brute_Force_ September 13, 2012 6:18:54 PM hey guys, I'm finally upgrading from my 4 years old hp laptop (2.0 GHz dual core, 9200GS ) I came across this Samsung laptop: http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/47391-np550p5c-s02a... I believe that the Quad Core i7 3610QM and a GT650M should be a sizable upgrade. and to sweeten the deal I thought I should treat my self with an SSD, and instantly thought of the 830 (both Samsung ). However it seems the 830 write speed is only 400 MB/s, while i've seen others well over 500 (SanDisk Extreme is faster and $40 cheaper for example) avaliable SSDs I'm choosing from: http://www.scorptec.com.au/computer/40/800 any opinions are greatly appreciated, even about the laptop itself I would also highly appreciate any advice/tutorials about how can I get the new SSD up and running (software wise) Thanks and Cheers.
