Wish I had 4 computers.
We are constantly fighting over the 2 we have.

Everyone "needs" their own computer.

Pmom wouldnt let me spring for a new dual core pc with pci express vid card, she says we dont need 5 pc'* at home .........sheesh
not a huge fan of maxtor diamondmax series, just becuase I of the failure rates (keep in mind that the percentage is minimal compared to the number of drives sold tho), but I cant really comment much more on that one.


anyway sounds good 16MB cache is a huge advantage....I need to spring for SATA 2 or U320....

I only have this one.
One PC with 1 40 gig HDD and I installed a 120 gig for movies and stuff.
A bit more HDD than I need but the drive was only about $50 new, a year ago.

sad thing is, I could use 3-4 PC'* at once...

server, music/videos/downloads, a desktop to browse on, and a laptop to take places.

but I only have one.
