I am still not ready to start looking at upgrading any of my notebook or desktop computer to SSDs. At this point, the SSD is still too expensive for the slight benefit a consumer will get from the SSD upgrade. I will hold out until prices drop significantly for SSDs and capacities are more in line with what you can get on a traditional HDD.
Those who want to upgrade to an SSD for their notebook or desktop now can get new SSDs and upgrade kits from Imation. The company has announced that it is shipping its S-class and M-class SSDs along with all-in-one upgrade kits.
The SSDs are offered in 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch sizes for notebooks and desktops. Imation promises better boot times, faster application loading and overall higher performance with the SSD. The upgrade kits are available for 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch SSDs and include Acronis True Image HD software for data transfer along with USB-to-SATA or SATA-to-SATA cables in the 2.5-inch kits. The 3.5-inch kits offer the software and a SATA connector and power cable. Pricing starts at $189.99 for M-class SSDs, $659.99 for S-class SSDs, and the upgrade kits start at $299 in the M-class and $1,299.99 in the S-class.hdd, Imation, SSD, Storage
