I think I created an account before with this site, but apparently it could not be found so I just created another account now. I have a few questions. My first question is would I be able to use an msata SSD in the 2740p or would I need an adapter to convert the msata drive to usata? Would either of the adapters in the following links work and would these be good prices? mSATA to Micro SATA Adapter Addonics Product: 1.8" mSATA - micro SATA adapter This is the msata drive I'm looking to get. CT128M4SSD3 - 128GB, mSATA Solid State Drive , from Crucial.com My second question is does HP load their laptops with a lot of bloatware? I ask this because my 2740p seems a little slower than it should be and it really heats up under a heavy load. My last question is has anyone had trouble registering their fingerprint with the HP security software? Thanks for the help.
