New SSD disk
I just got one new SSD disk MTRON MOBI 3000 for my Dell Latitude D430 notebook. It's very small, only 32GB, but it definitely ROCKS!!! I can boot in about 12 seconds, without any deep tuning of the kernel and boot services, but the _responsiveness_ is the most relevant thing, apart the read/write 100MB/s throughput (that is not so important for a desktop system). The impressive part is the ~5500 iops (IO operations per second) obtained using a workload of 4KB random reads/writes!
