Recommended SDD for use in multi-tasking/office workhorse?

Discussion Topic

History

Hi iFixit community,

I would like to swap out the 7200RPM HDD + 32GB SSD cache for a native SDD solution within my Asus Ultrabook UX32VD. What product on the market today do you recommend that balances performance and affordability, here is my typical usage needs:

- music/video file format conversion

- Apache + mySQL server for local development

- internet browsing (up to concurrent 30 tabs across 3 Chrome instances)

- gaming (up to Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3)

Thank you for your time. :)

I think your asking a lot here for a SSD only solution. The best answer here is a hybrid HD (HD with SSD combined). It is the best balance between performance and affordability.

While many laptops can do much of what you want, ultra books are limited in there expandability. Desktops are still the king here as much as we hate their size.
