Simple straightforward fresh install if W7 on a HP Elitebook 8460p
Tell me your price any hardware seperatly paid.

Currently fitted with 320gb disk hdd. Would like a fresh install with all drivers on to the SSD provided I already have or one you recommend.
Becoming Slow and getting buggy.
Used to tinker with PC's and driver's but lack of other of to use.
External case if you have one/two also handy.

Willing to drop off and collect.
Timeline soonish not 3 weeks though

Hi James,
My offer is to perform the following tasks.
1. Visit you on-site in East Cannington and pick up your laptop
2. Install an SSD into your laptop (you can provide the SSD or I can purchase one for you which you can then pay me back)
I can provide a couple of links for you to local computer suppliers where you can choose the SSD you would like.
3. Install Windows 7 onto the SSD (I will use the product key located on the bottom of your notebook)
4. Install all required drivers downloaded from the official HP web site
5. Install any useful software you might like (eg. Skype, Firefox, Chrome, VLC etc.) If you have any requests then I can download them as well
6. Return the notebook back to you in East Cannington

I am able to complete this task within a couple of days of picking up the notebook.

I don't quite understand your question, but I will try to answer it anyway. Apologies if I've got it wrong :)
Your HP laptop will need a 2.5" SSD drive. It will replace your existing 320GB HDD.
If you go to the PLE or Austin Computers web site and select the appropriate menu item you will see a variety of brands. $135 will get you a 275GB Crucial MX300 SSD at PLE.
At Austin Computers you can get a 256GB Intel SSD for $125
Is you SanDisk SSD a 2.5" SSD? If so, then it can be used in your laptop.

Is the Intel SSD still the pick of the bunch as it was years ago.
And is it worth the $125 vs my old out of warranty one in the cupboard
The Intel is one of the better brands. If your old SanDisk has just been sitting in the cupboard unused, then it is still good to use in your notebook. I don't think the speed difference would be noticeable. But it's best to do your own research into the old SanDisk SSD to decide whether you want to use a more recent drive.
