I am looking for a solid state drive for my laptop.
My dillemma: I have been waiting for the new Intel SSDs since Q3/2010, as I've heard they should be better and cheaper, due to lower memory manufacturing costs.
Now it looks like the new Intel drives are very fast, but still expensive. I would still buy one of them if I could benefit from the full speed. My hardware only has a SATA-2 port though.
Thus, my question:
- Is it worthwhile to buy an SSDs made for SATA-3 if I won't be able to use the full speed?
I don't consider this question subjective, as I am mainly looking for answers concerning the SATA-2/SATA-3 conflict.
