Pre-review of Transcend solid state disk
So far I haven't succeeded in getting Ubuntu installed on my solid state disk which has been somewhat of an disappointment, apparently Ubuntu isn't to friendly about installing the OS on a USB disk (which the disk appears as), there's some fixes but I'll wait with it until I receive my new laptop.
For now write and read performance hasn't been tremendous but it's at least faster than my 80GB 4.2k rpm disk. Hopefully it's better than the 100GB 7.2k rpm disk which follows in my new laptop. Since I'll only have my OS on this disk it should be fine either way.
