  4. Archean,

    Z68 ssd-cache is still FAR inferior to a proper SSD. It's only $100 for a 60GB SSD. So your laptop is hardly "obsolete." Also, I would define obsolescence as no longer adequate to meet YOUR unique needs: (1) portability (2) office work (3) games (4) movies (5) Internet, etc. Until the point when your laptop is no longer usable for you, it's not obsolete :)

    Heh. Actually just go purchase a small SSD and blow that thing out of the water.
