If you're interested in a laptop and want me to replace the HDD with an SSD for a modest price, I can (I have several spares in the parts drawer that I use to upgrade older machines). The laptops themselves are pretty zippy despite having older gen Intel CPUs but adding an SSD makes them a different machine. The i5 with the 120GB Samsung SSD is definitely the fastest of the bunch when not doing CPU intensive tasks (aka general use). Huge difference in startup and launching apps. Once Windows loads and does its indexing and prefetching, the ones with the HDDs are quite pleasant to use.
