    Same here. When Windows 7 came out I decided it was time for an upgrade. Old system had EIDE drives DDR memory and USB 1. I reused my case and my DVD drive (HP with LightScribe) and spend about $600. Since then I have updated the case for better cooling and added another WD 1tb drive. May look at add in video card and maybe a SSD when the prices get right.

    I bought a higher end PC than I needed, don't plan to replace it for a long time.

    Dave, haven't seen anyone who actually has one of those yet. I think with SSD speeds, and dropping prices, people are waiting. A Guy

    I was thinking about putting a SSD and one of these in my laptop

    It's got a 320GB now, figure this might give it a kick

    Dave, do you have 2 bays in your laptop or are you planning to use the CD/DVD bay for the second disk.
    That hybrid drive looks interesting - especially for laptops with only 1 bay. I had not seen that before. Thanks for sharing it.

    My laptop is a Dell Studio 17" with 2 HDD bays, probably at the end of the year (or before) I'll get another SSD, maybe a little bigger and a little faster. Then the X25-V will go into the laptop, though I don't think I need a bigger SSD except to get use of the full controller. Been thinking about the XT since I saw the review at Anandtech.

    It does look interesting.

    Interesting article. Maybe in the near future they will put more than 4GB Nand on the drive. I wonder how this 4GB "buffer" overlaps with the RAM buffering (caching) that Superfetch does.
