Might be a subject for another thread, but if a 40gb SSD becomes cheap enough, why not ship new OS's on the drive? You'd have to reconfigure all your installed non-OS software to be in the same place on a different drive all the time, but once that's done, subsequent upgrades to you computers OS would be sold on an SSD as the media. All you would need to do is take out the old, plug in the new, let it find drivers and it's done.

Now don't give them ideas like that laddy....

Maybe a 120 GB, 40GB is a bit of a squeeze. I can't see it ever happening M$ gets in hot water bundling media players and browsers with the OS in Europe and South Korea. This would be a good idea on the face of it but would it cause more work for lawyers?
What we can see at the moment is much the same as it was for spinners. $100 for 10GB in 2000 and 1TB is still around $100. SSD seem to have arrived at 120GB for around $50 to $100 and 240 GB from $110 to $150 depending on sales taxes etc.

Sure.

The performance of my PC isn't too bad.

According to WEI, "Desktop performance for Windows Aero" is my bottleneck (rating = 4.5).
I find it intriguing that the "3D business and gaming graphics performance" is much higher (rating = 6.1)

The second lowest WEI score is my HDD (rating = 5.9).

Ouch.

I can buy:
  • 2 TB HDDs for under $100.
  • 200 GB SSDs start at ~$130.

Nand flash driver for Amilo Xi2428..
not found. Friend has installed W7 on his Amilo Xi2428 but Device Manager shows 'PCI memory manager' driver missing - which I guess is the Nand Flash driver for Vista. Tried installing the Vista driver in Compatibility mode but still says operating system not supported. Any ideas please?
