Whenever you mess with install directories, it's always best to just re-install the program just in case anyway. Even when getting a SSD a lot of people just reinstall Windows because it can be a hassle to go from a platter drive to a SSD because of alignment issues.

For those who move data folders out of OS partition, how would app launch time benefit from it? The technique to move user and programdata folders out of C drive is pretty "advance" last I checked as there is no easy way to do that.

|SlickPickSlim||You are correct. 128 is plenty for programs and apps. My drive has maintained 70 gb available since I've pointed all my users folders and data to a spinning drive. Even an 80 gb ssd is doable and there are ways to decrease paging file size etc... if you're working with a small ssd to maximize space. But 128 is the sweet spot, I'm not even bothering with messing with space maximization techniques.|

|blackblaze||folks are just using their SSD for the OS and where to install applications, and probably have a second drive to store files, for best performance with a SSD and non-SD drive? If that is the case, would 128GB be sufficient over the course of 2+ yrs? I can't imagine, based on the scenario presented, that I'd have enough applications to fill the SSD. Am I correct in this assumption?|

|CheapBastardX10||Recommend the SSD, just not the price. $150 is bad, especially with the recent falling in price for SSD. $140 is a good deal. $130 is a slick deal.|

i paid 10 more than dryugan probably more than a month ago, but got it at least 10 days earlier.
sometimes productivity is worth more than a few bucks, jump on this if you're considering the m4, it's a solid choice for upgrade.

|yoshigamer141||Not a very good price. Newegg had it a while back for almost a 1$/gb. The good deals come from price match to amazon when they have it on sale then a coupon.|

Crucial m4 128GB SSD - 149 w/tax AC - STAPLES
Staples has Crucial m4 128GB SSD for $169.99. Apply $30 off $150 coupon. Mine came to 148.39 tax included. Use your favorite CC or CB site to get some of that tax back to make it a lil cheaper
