So my laptop hard drive is nearly full and I need to do something about it.
It's an HP Pavillion DV-9000. I've got 2 gigs of Ram and a dual core AMD Turion. It still works fine, although the drive indexing is a bit slow.

I'm thinking about buying a Seagate Momentus XT Hybrid.
The one I'm considering has an 8gig adaptive SSD with a 750 gig conventional hard drive. It's currently selling for about 180.00

Anybody have any thoughts on these?

update:
I installed the HD and the RAM. Windows 7 x64 now boots in about 20 seconds. It used to take several minutes to boot (vista x32). Visual Studio boots up and loads all necessary files in about 10 seconds. That used to take around 1-2 minutes depending on the project. Compiling even a very large project now takes seconds. I'm very happy with this hybrid drive.

On a related note, I just found out that I don't own this computer. HP apparently has a bios lock preventing me from upgrading my wireless adapter without using an 'approved' adapter. Why they used a standard connection and made it so easily changeable I'll never know.
