For example, with 40GB of boot drive capacity, a user could load the SSD with the Microsoft* Windows* 7 operating system, Microsoft Office applications and their favorite gaming application, such as Dragon Age: Origins*, and experience up to 43 percent faster overall system performance or 86 percent improvement in their gaming experience.**

That's not what I've read. Are they just talking load times?

Besides, I want 64Gb minimum for OS + apps, my current boot drive sits at about 40Gb.

I like the price wars though. :)

I feel like I'm in 1995 when I hear of people using tiny disks for their boot drive and large volumes for games and applications.

Not what I've experienced. Loading times or FPS wise.

I take your word for it. ;)

Marketing hype is my bet.
