Actually, it's up to 4 512GB SDD, giving a total of 2TB.

But either way it's a Mac, so why bother?

I'm a PC. Link

It should also be noted that each of those 512 Mac SSD's can be yours for the low low price of $1400 each for a total of 5600. Makes you wonder just how good a price the Iphone really is.

Unfortunately, most new technology is expensive. I remember when 1TB+ drives were so expensive I could only wish to have one. Now they're as cheap as anything. It'll be the same with SSDs sooner or later.

I think the SSD's that are being used in MAC's are Hybrids, half SSD and half SATA, i.e. waste of cash :P

Best out there in terms of SSD isn't even a hard disk per say, its a PCI-e 1x Card that can handle 1.5GB/s both Read and Write... thats worth a fair bit of cash, and they can come in sizes of 1TB etc.

But they are DDR memory with a good battery backup, and has a huge lifetime on them.

i'm thinking about going in for a Corsair Force Series F120 Solid-State Hard Drive [120GB] . how does it stack up to a RAID 1+0 or 0+1 or a VelociRaptor in terms of actual speed?

I'm really looking forward to seeing SSD's drop in price...

I think HDD read/write speed is the bottleneck in my PC, is there any way of finding out?

To clarify, I know my drive's speed but is there a way of finding out whether or not it's slowing my PC down?

Sorry Monkey, I have the point this out... SSD is Solid State Drive, so SSD DRive is Solid State Drive Drive . No offense intended, it's just a pet peeve of mine. Like people saying USB Bus - Universal Serial Bus Bus - and PIN Number - Personal Identification Number Number.

Commonly referred to as RAS Syndrome - Redundant Acronym Syndrome Syndrome.

I agree though. I'm looking to get a Solid State Drive to either install games on or to use as my Windows drive. Just when they're more affordable...

I could do with an app to check out my disk read/write speed and activity too. I have a relatively new drive (in terms of recently bought and a recent model/manufacture) and I get ridiculously slow loading times in games and when transferring files.

Any downside to the PCI-e 2.0 cards?
