My wife just bought a new Dell. So I get her Windows 10 Asus Touchscreen Q something or other. 6 gig ram with a I3 processor.
For it. I sprang and spent cyber monday bucks on a Samsung Evo 500 Gig SSD.

On this IBM T430. This drive will be taken out AND a 60 gig SSD Kington will take it's place.
Might try this drive currently, next in my Dell XT2 touchscreen for grins.
The 60 gig SSD is coming out of it.

This IBM 32 bit install/hardrive came out of a old single core blown up Laptop.
I just changed wlan settings and installed a pae kernel and called it good.

I guess a re furbished one may be Ok. Her laptop is only a 1 year old I think, so I went with new.

Edit: Looks like a price hike since I bought mine. Below quote when I bought mine.

I just purchased one off ebay Refurbished, how anyone can refurbish a sdd is beyond me, just wipe it that is about all one can do. it had to be from a returned system they got it off of, and seeings how they are made in 2018, it seems to me that they cannot be too beat up and used. so it is a savings of 10 bucks, it came to a few pennies over 70$, w/tax. Best Buy via ebay. Should have it in a few days.

Code:
Samsung - Geek Squad Certified Refurbished 860 EVO 500GB Internal SATA Solid ...

    ITEM PRICE:
    US $64.99
    Free shipping
now back to the regularly secluded post about ssd's and such...

My advice is that if you don't want to run it (but just want to hang onto it just in case) that you use something like clonezilla, take an image of the whole SSD, save that image file to a USB stick or external drive and just keep it.

You can then just wipe it out and install whatever you like.
thanks for the input.
cloning looks like one of 2 things i will definitely do.

you say "windows is pretty much bound to that computer" - but what about the drive?

previously someone said it balks when trying to run from USB, but there's some (hopefully free as in beer) software that can be used to spoof windows into allowing it.

also thanks to rokytnji:
i should wait to see what is actually in the box when i get the machine.

PS: gearbest really sucks. i ordered on 12th of November, and they still don't know when it will be shipped from china. they say the company (jumper) is out of stock. i wonder if it went bankrupt or something.

I have no idea. I seem to recall that Windows always wanted to be on BIOS drive 0 and on the primary active partition. If it wasn't you'd get problems. I don't think that's the case anymore.

I searched and found some 3rd party tool called "WinToUSB"... the official MS thing to do the same is only for "Enterprise" editions of Windows 10.
