Breathing new life in my old laptop

My Dell e1505 laptop (five years old) is long over due for either replacement or a serious upgrade of some parts. After considering a new laptop, I am now thinking about replacing my 120GB hard drive with one of the new hybrid drives available on the market.

The Momentus XT is an excellent replacement for traditional laptop hard drives. It offers large capacities and SSD-like performance at a much smaller price. It's a hybrid in that the drive is a 500 GB HDD with built-in 4GB Flash Memory for often used files (this is a great idea). The cost is only $120 in some places online. Check out this review:
