    FLACO It's not the A/C. I'm talking too much & need to keep the papers from blowing around.

    From what I understand they are similar. Note: I do not use my fingers to type as my hands are in casts. Use chopsticks at the moment.

    After having a bout of foot in mouth disease, had to switch to hands - OUCH. With chopsticks, I can be further from the keyboard.

    Nerv, There isn't a preferred amount of gb's their speed is more or less the same the difference is in the capacity and what you pay for it.
    However, Maxtor have come out with a new line of hard disks of good performance with 8mb cache on them they are now selling a 320 Gb disk.
    These disks are fast enough and support ATA 133. I know that it is not much an improvement over ATA 100 but it does give you a slight improvement in speed. I've seen serial ATA at work and I think it will still take at least 6 months until they will really be worth considering (I'd wait for the second generation).
