OK i guess this was my mistake.. I didnt clarify enough where this is going into. It is going in my Sony Vaio Fw 140D laptop (4 gigs of ram, p8400 prcoessor 2.26 Ghz, ATI 3470), and windows 7 will be going on it. I would be mainly concerned with speed
. It stays home most of the time attached to two external monitors so, power usage and how many thousand feet i can drop it from doesnt matter to me
However now that you guys mention it, the 80 gig size maybe be extra, especially for the price. Looking at my boot partition now its 47 gigs. Which I guess could be trimmed down to 32 ish by trimming the windows install and dumping the rest to an external drive.
So all in all, I guess my choice are being reduced in price and size
Could somone recommend the best performing drive that fits those needs ?
