HD strickly as a boot drive
 
I've been seriously considering the Raptop (150Gb) but I'm not entirely convinced they are worth the money anymore considering the latest drives. I'm hearing that a single platter 320gig drive (Western Digital I believe) is pretty close to the same speed. I guess I just don't like the idea of partitioning a 750Gb drive and put an OS on it. No real reason really, I'd just rather had a dedicated HD for the OS(s).

Any opinions?

Thanks.

Haha, maybe I should edit that out. Then again maybe not. That's pretty funny if I do say so myself.

Hahahahahaha! That is funny for sure....can you get those at Pacific Mall? Anyways....I would say a dedicated HDD for the OS is better in my opinion. Keep it clean, keep it fast, keep it mean! LOL

Yes I prefer a dedicated OS drive as well, I suppose I could have actually answered your OP :P

Actually I was really hoping for opinions on the Raptor vs other drives right now as I'm also a fan of a dedicated drive.

Thanks
