ok so before I started using my G3, I had a badass Acer AspireOne netbook running Ubuntu Netbook Remix.



See? Told you it was badass. Problem is that the internal heat (it's convection cooled >_<) fucking nuked the HD TWICE, so now if I wanna boot UNR I have to use a Flash stick, which is slow and doesn't let me do much in the way of saving things (because the UNR imager doesn't let me make a boot partition and a storage partition on the flash drive, if I use an 8GB stick all 8GB is going towards Ubuntu filesystem, which is fucking bullshit).

My question is this: Would an SSD be feasible for day to day use (ie: running the Internet, Milkytracker (and some light EnergyXT use), emulators, MP3 player, etc..). I know that with an SSD I'm pretty much covered in the heat department, but the read/write cycle thing scares me.

Oh god I can't even find my fucking charger in this shithole of a room. I need to clean it. Thanks for reading this, I hope you can help me.

I think you have a problem. I don't think the default settings of a laptop are to fry your hard drive.

That's a pro tip. And there are such things as fans, small though they may be, inside. If they don't work, you've gotta send it back or open 'er up and fix them yourself.

I've sent it back twice, and each time it works for like 3 months then BLAM.

All I want to know is if going the SSD route is OK for everyday use or not...

Well, yes, but I believe there are bigger fish to fry. Especially since SSDs are expensive and not... temperature-proof? They have a failing point as well.

Take it apart. Learn something. That's what I do.

Or send it back again, provided you don't have to pay for it.

You have to pay for shipping man.

And yeah, I took this thing apart. The only thing I've learned is that aside from the RAM and HDD, there are no user replaceable items. >_<

buy an external hard drive? ;o

if you keep your laptop on your lap that might cause it to over heat.
