I have the below laptop (Asus X32 - part of the UL30 family) but it doesnt currently have a hard drive.
So looking for some advice.
Apparently "the Asus X32A also has a light, Linux-based operating system that can be launched with the push of a dedicated button. Unlike Windows 7, the other operating system loads in seconds and gives you access to programs like Skype, email and a web browser."
I would like to utilize this and have windows 7 installed for watching films and updating a blog (travelling Australia for 7 months)
My first question is do I have to do anything special to set this up seeing as I don't have the original hard drive. I'm assuming I can just partition a hard drive and put the two OS's on it or does the bios itself have this function and hence I would not need to partition the hard drive?
Secondly should I be going for an SSD or should I go for a hybrid or standard sata hard drive?
Will I see much improvement performance wise/ battery time, based on the spec of this laptop?
I will not need a huge amount of hard disk space and would potentially just go for a 60gb to 120gb SSD alternatively I could get a 750gb hybrid.
Thanks in advance for any help that can be offered.
