I have been thinking of doing the same with my MSI netbook with 2 Gb memory. I think that the manufacturer is actually the same as your LG. How much speed improvement did you find?
At present it dual boots XP and Xubuntu, but now never use XP so would only load Xubuntu onto it.

You are right: MSI made the netbook for LG. Which is why I was disappointed that the X110 came with just 1GB RAM and no free slot for more RAM.

I did not benchmark the before and after systems. If I have time, I'll put the old hard drive back in, and make a comparison.


Hi Ralph,

what about partitioning the 500gb drive into 160GB + 340 for data? Maybe it's only limited to not boot from a disk larger that 160 GB.

Cheers, Ralf

This is an interesting idea, but not one that I will be able to test. I put the 500GB SSD back in my larger laptop.
