If price is no object, you're still in a pinch: You're down a harddrive bay. Unless you forego an optical drive for a SSD/HDD combo, you're stuck with a teeny SSD. And never mind a RAID0 / RAID1 setup. What's a user to do? Choose speed or choose storage?
Enter mSata. Instead of your laptop's PCI Express Mini WWAN card, you can install an Intel mSata card instead. With the right screwdriver and a disassembly guide, installing an mSata card on my laptop was pretty painless. The BIOS picked it up without a problem and it was operational within minutes. Your mileage may vary, so do your homework. And while you're at it, add some imaging software to your shopping list to migrate your OS properly.
The result? I have a laptop that boots under 25 seconds, loads applications in a snap and completes over two dozen startup services in a blink of an eye. My 80GB mSata SDD boot drive coupled with my 600GB RAID0 volume is humming through tasks like a well-oiled machine.
My desktop can finally retire, mSata is the sweet spot for both laptop speed and storage.
(Note: Currently my mSata drive has about 28.8GB free space. For Windows 7, moving your User Files to a non-system drive is both incomplete and painful. Because of this, I will not endorse the 40GB version of this drive)
But this one did. I upgraded the drive on my new Acer Iconia W500 Tablet, which comes with only a 32GB drive. I pried the tablet open (this is the hardest part). I popped the old drive out and the new one in - this is a matter of unscrewing one screw, removing a protective anti-static cover, and taking the drive out, very similar to replacing RAM. I did a fresh installation of Windows 8 (dev preview) from scratch. Everything went smoothly, and as quick as I'd expect for a fast SSD.
A few notes - the drive originally reported 74.5GB of unallocated space when the installation began. After formatting, it was down to 74.1GB free space, with the 350MB system reserved partition. Finally after Windows 8 installation, we have 65.5GB free.
Also I want to note - although this drive is described as "Oem" and doesn't even mention Intel in the title, I can tell you that it is in fact the same genuine Intel drive that is being sold for a bit more as retail, and it does not look like what is pictured - it actually has the proper Intel label on the drive itself, just as you would expect with the retail one. The only thing that seemed "OEM" about it is the box it came in, which looks a bit generic. The label on the drive shows that the model number is SSDMAEMC080G2.
Packing was excellent, very protective, and shipping was very quick. I ordered expedited, late in the day, and expected to have it in a couple of days, but it was there the next morning.
I've been up and running for a couple days now, no problems at all.Read more ›
This Intel 310 SSD is a terrific little drive, and I'm glad my T420s had the right kind of PCI slot so that I could use it -- make sure yours is compatible with this new SSD format before you buy one. The only problem with the 310 drive is that it is sort of hard to find right now, but keep trying -- it's worth it.
This is my 2nd ssd, so no surprise, and install is easy. Highly recommend

No box but do you really need one? Used this for booting my OS and some of the more intensive programs like Matlab and Solidworks. Super fast and reliable.Published 9 months ago by Nate
This is a great little hard drive. I was able to easily install this into my new Lenovo ThinkPad. I use the SSD to store my Windows 7 operating system and program files. Read morePublished on September 11, 2012 by McIntosh 2
It was a true POC (Piece Of Cake) to install this in the PCI express slot in a Lenovo T420S. Two screws remove laptop cover, one screw holds this in the mSATA slot like a memory... Read morePublished on June 16, 2012 by dontfret
The SSD works fine when installed in my Lenovo T420s however, it has a formatted capacity of only 74.5 GB. Any way you measure it, this is not 80 GB as quoted by Intel. Read morePublished on April 23, 2012 by Mac0z
