So my brother visiting from Europe gave me a 120gb OCZ Vertex 2 SSD as a thank you gift for organizing the family get-together.
My home pc is a recent i7 960 machine used mainly for gaming & internet so it'll probably go in my laptop that I use for work, a 2 year old Dell XPS M1530.
Am I right in thinking the SSD will have a bigger perceived performance impact on the laptop than in the home pc?
Does replacing laptop HDD with SSD affect any warranties? Laptop has 3 year's next day on-site support I don't want to mess with.
I know pc hardware, built up most of my own PC's. Should I install myself or have it installed, again keeping warranty in mind?
I already know not to defrag, anything else one should be aware of when using a SSD?
