Sure there are, here's an example: SAMSUNG 840 Series MZ-7TD500BW 2.5" 500GB SATA III Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - Newegg.com. The problem with larger ssd drives is that they are significantly more expensive than their mechanical equivalent. Only you can decide for yourself if having that big a drive in your laptop is worth almost $600. Is the laptop you have even worth that much?

BTW, you don't need to worry that a particular drive says it is compatible with your laptop. As long as the drive is a 2.5" form factor SATA drive, you're good to go.

I agree, If you will be only storing the OS and other programs on their then 240GB will be plenty..
