    Yes. I assume you mean a 128gb ssd so it will be faster. I also assume you have a 500GB hdd currently inside?

    As closingracer stated, if you're going to a 128GB SSD you should see a noticeable performance increase. Keep in mind you're also decreasing your available storage by 75% so you'll want to make sure you aren't going to need more than 128GB or consider piggybacking your current HDD and using it for storage. If that's the case, definitely use the SSD for your OS and applications and the HDD for simple storage.

    Sounds like you downgraded your storage capacity by 75%. Is there a reason you did that?

    I definitely understand. As long as the 120GB HDD is enough space you'll be fine.
