Solid state drive on old laptop with Windows XP

I have an old laptop that has a 30 GB HDD (IDE 2.5") and I thought of giving it a little boost by replacing the HDD for a SSD.

"Windows XP supports SSDs, no problem here.

Although the SSD market for 2.5"" drives using the PATA interface has been largely ignored, some manufacturers (e.g. Transcend, KingSpec) do offer those. Also make sure to get an SLC type SSD for better performance (as opposed to MLC))."
