    Is a Ultraportable right for College??

    I really don't think a SSD is worth it. Especially if you are gonna go cheap. I'd reccomend getting a fast 7200rpm drive they're fast enough. My T410 with a 7200rpm is as fast as my desktop with a corsair black.

    Mtro2033 Free at Nvidia Store!

    If I recall correctly, the last time I bought something that used Digital Rivers for digital distribution it took a while to get my key and download link. So don't get discouraged if it takes a couple of hours, this could still work.
