Yeah, I don't think many people realize the heat, noise, and vibration that comes off the hard drive until it's taken away - my V13 feels/sounds like a completely different computer after getting the SSD put into it. The problem though is price; I'd happily pay $100 for the heat/noise improvements, but $300+? A harder sell for me personally.

Thanks for the input - makes sense!
