What does "Bootdisk 80 GB" mean exactly? I have an older 60 GB EIDE Maxtor ... you're saying put the OS and programs on the 60, and use the larger ones to store data? Then D-Ban the 60 clean and reload OS and programs every few months, without bothering with or moving the data? That seems like a great idea actually.
But I still don't understand these mega-sized HDDs ... I've almost never even half-filled the 250s ... I have more music than I could listen to in three lifetimes, and it's just 45 GB ... text programs and images take up almost no space, so why all the massive storage? Movies are the only thing I can imagine ... and I wouldn't torrent or Limewire a movie for any reason ... my grocery store downtown here has $1 rentals for all new releases, and Netflix will stream them without a download, so why risk any of that downloading nonsense?
Boot = Os, Data = data always get 3 times the storage you think you will need for Storage. if you have 45gig then I would buy a 320gig only because the prices are so low. It is hard to fill up 120/160 gig harddrives unless you are really trying.
It was way easier to fill up a 10 gig drive.
Now with all the cloud computing talk you may not even be storing a lot of pic's and video and or music locally anymore.
