Bought a couple of SSD's for the kids Alpha's, and R1 and an R2. HP s700 SSD 500GB I dont know too much about these drives , aside that they used 3d nan, i picked these up 2, for 110US, so thats pretty good. Hopefully this will blast some more life into the Alphas for the kids. I also looked into the CPU upgrades, but the I5 should be fast enough really.. I love the form factor of these Alphas, plenty fast enough for not so new games. anyone else using the Alpha's?
