    For those who have upgraded their T902 to an ssd...
    1. Which SSD would you recommend?
    2. Did you migrate your OS or do a fresh install? Which of these would you recommend?

    1. The cheapest at max capacity you can afford. Some brands and solutions are to avoid - namely, OCZ drives, all drives based on Sandforce controllers especially if you're using encryption, etc.
    2. Clean install all the way!

    I had 512GB Crucial MX100 in my T902 and it ran like a champ. I also have a 256GB HP mSATA (rebranded Lite On) still in it that also runs like a champ.

    You might want to buy mSATA (512GB would be great) one for OS and apps as C: and a giant 2.5" spinning platter for storage (1 or 2TB).

    I am leaning towards your mSATA suggestion... This way, you wouldn't have to do a fresh install, correct? Do you know if this drive will be compatible with the T902?

    You need to do fresh install no matter what. Unless you want things to suck.
