  3. Re: Smallest SSD size you could realistically use as boot drive

    I install all my applications on the SSD. That way you get the benefit of the SSD for application loading. With a 120GB you should be able to load most if not all of your apps without a problem. ...
  4. Re: Smallest SSD size you could realistically use as boot drive

    Re: To SSD or to not SSD? That is the question.

    Yes SSD's like Win 7 better. Win 7 is SSD aware and correctly aligns it when preparing and formatting the partitions.

  16. Re: How do you transfer files between 2 comps with a USB?

    I do it all the time, if you are just transferring data, this is probably the simplest. Will be quicker then USB.
