Kingston 120gb A400 ssd for $17.99.

https://www.bestbuy.com/site/king...Id=5715499

Amazon has the same price but it's back ordered for 2-4 weeks. You can get it at Best Buy and pick it up a little sooner, though you'll probably still have to wait (it's 12 days for my area for example).

This is also good for those who don't have prime, to save on shipping costs.

Other variations (links on product page):
240gb for $29.99
480gb for $59.99

These ones are only back ordered for a few days on Amazon so you might as well just get them there, unless you have Best Buy rewards to spend or a gift card.

At this price, makes a great alternative to a flash drive. Writing 120GB on to a flash drive takes a long time.

Perfect use for one of these, will actually surprise you how much those older systems were held back by slow HDD.

240GB may be the sweet spot, both for windows OS and for price per GB

My experience is that if a product needs to be returned, you'll find it way easier at Walmart compared to BB.

Largely depends on how the machine is used.

Any good recommendations on a good usb 3.0 enclosure that can handle good transfer speeds? So many usb sticks suck in that department.

Agreed, I'd give + $10 to double the capacity. Shows $19.99 in the 120 for me.

I think I'd go with this one instead: https://slickdeals.net/f/12694840-wd-green-m2-240g-google-express-with-20-32?v=1&src=SiteSearch

I want the smallest SSD for a super old Lenovo T60p with dual core centrino and 4GB ram. Plan on putting Ubuntu on it so anything would do. Even a 64GB would be fine. Recommendations?

This 120 GB A400 will be fine for your use. Make sure your BIOS setting for SATA is set to AHCI before doing clean install of Ubuntu. I'm rocking Linux Mint 19.1 as I'm typing this.

This PC I'm on now doesn't even have SSD. It's an older Asus M3N78PRO MoBo with AMD Phenom 8450 Triple-Core Processor, 80 GB spinner HDD. Works very well for web browsing, listening to Spotify, etc.

I got the 120 GB SSD installed on another older Dell PC, Optiplex 755 with 4 GB RAM, dual boot Windows 7 and Windows 10. MUCH better performance compared when it was running on the 80 GB spinner HDD (now in the Mint Linux box).

Just FYI, I did clean OS install on both machines with SATA mode switched from IDE to AHCI in the BIOS. Both machines were set to IDE mode. I do think this contributes to the performance gain on both machines, with or without SSD.
