Two almost the same rigs will be settled to show the performance in three ways, booting up, opening multiple applications and transferring huge file. The only spec difference between two demo rigs is the storage device. One is Kingston SSDNow V+ 64GB SSD and one is 7200RPM hard disk. Believe it or not, the speed of SSD rig is almost doubled!<o:p></o:p>
