Both of which are far greater in capacity than I need for an OS drive, and would yield far greater performance.
However, I'm still considering the XT as an option, just because it would offer great performance with enough storage to last me a *very* long time... I could install some programs, maybe store my pictures, documents, and such.
Good to hear great things about these drives from somebody that owns one though. Thank you for the feedback and suggestions.
EDIT: Just saw this 750GB Momentus XT for $150.
Not a bad deal...
Yeah, the performance of an SSD is hard to argue with - I'm thinking in terms of a laptop too, not desktops that can hold more than two hdds.
