I would recommend an Intel SSD 320[1]. I like that capacitor thing=20
although on a laptop with battery it might not matter much.

There are also the Intel SSD 510 and at least the ThinkPad T520 has a SATA=
600 interface, but the price to capacity ratio is better with the=20
SATA-300, but still quite fast SSD 320.

I wouldn't consider the X-25M anymore, cause I think the SSD 320 has=20
superseded it and tends to be cheaper as well.
