SSDs be fast yo

So my SSD finally arrived after they made sure it took the stated eight days.  The process for installing the SSD was really easy and I didn't bother taking any pictures.
Basically:
  1. Undo one screw on the back panel and pull it off
  2. lift up the HDD unscrew two screws on the little chassis 
  3.  pulled off the padding that was on the HDD and put it on the SSD
  4. Attach the SSD to the chassis with two screws
  5. Put the back panel back on 
I then installed windows, all the drivers, and ran a few speed tests


DriveBootHybernate
HDD57.134.6
SSD29.620.6

I ran crystaldiscMark:


It sure has made a speed difference.  Not having used the netbook significantly with the HDD I don't know If I will really notice the difference but I am sure it will help.
