Tweaktown looks at the question if it is worth upgrading your Notebook with an SSD Drive. I did it and I love the result. I upgraded my good old IBM Thinkpad X40 12 inch notebook with a KingSpec 32GB SSD a month ago. The SSD makes the X40 competitive with today's netbooks and now I use it all the time again. The X40 had a real bad performing hard-drive. If the HDD in your notebook sucks big time than the SSD upgrade totally makes sense in my opinion.
Tweaktown did some more in-depth testing with SSD upgrades. See their report here. More details on the Thinkpad X40 SSD upgrade can be found in this report.
