I bought a Patriot 256GB SSD [^] for my new ASUS G73JH laptop [^] last month.

It is c: and only has OS and apps.
Boot time and app load has definitely moved into the HolyCrap range.

After reading up on using SSD's I also went through most of the suggested tweaks to minimize writes to the drive - including moving my user folder to d:.

I think they are still too pricey to get for my desktop.

The idea that I can be presented with a problem, set out to logically solve it with the tools at hand, and wind up with a program that could not be legally used because someone else followed the same logical steps some years ago and filed for a patent on it is horrifying.
