    Hi all,

    I just bought myself one of these tablets today and have already loaded Windows 8 with no problems. My tablet came with an 80gb SSD, and I was thinking of just putting in a 128gb SD card and use that as my main storage. I thought that it would be cheaper and easier instead of replacing the HDD.

    If I put in a fast card, does anyone see any issues? All programs would be stored on the hdd and the card would be storage only.

    Thanks heaps.

    I have a 128gb ssd (bulletproof) and a fast 128gb sd card that I got from a photography shop. my musicand files are on the sd which I have mounted as a folder on the ssd. Works very well and have had no problems.

    Thanks for the reply guys. I will order one in on Monday. Just seems a lot less of a hassel than replacing the SSD in the system.

    Windows 8 is going great. The only issue I had was the machine was telling me to update the ACPI (I think), and it turned out to be an optional update in Windows update.

    Win8 is taking a little to get used to, but I am learning more things every time I use it.
