We've taken a look at a handful of drives from Kingston's V and V+ Series of solid state drives, and this time around we actually have the smallest capacity drive on hand. This 30GB drive is intended for use as a boot drive, meaning you load your operating system and core programs to it, and use a second drive for file storage.

It looks like a very awesome deal considering the mail in rebates and instant rebates. I think I should get this for my dad so he can stop complaining about the long boot times of his crappy athlon X2 3400+. lol although he does have an old system this should still significantly increase the speed of his system and hold it off until I could afford to pay for a complete upgrade.

This should be more than enough to hold the OS + a few programs. How big is Windows 7 x64 when installed? 8GB? + MS Office, it shouldn't even use up all 30GB

That install with Windows 7 Pro x64, all the benchmark apps, things like Filezilla, Firefox, Screenhunter, and other small things installed is like 15GB.
