My current laptop is 4 years old and it is time to buy a new one.
My question is with regards to hardrives. Should I go for the 200GB 7200 RPM with FFS or the new technology the 64GB Solid State?
There is a big price difference, around US$ 900 more for the newer technology.
In the US (where Dell's latest models appear first)they offer what they call a RAID Performance: 640GB (2x320GB) 5400RPM or the 64 GB Solid State. Is there a big difference between those? I could wait a while until the first arrives in Asia.
Speed is the most important thing for me (I am not a gamer but like to jump between applications quickly etc) and while 64GB is not big I normally use around half of that anyway.
I always buy top of the range when it comes to a new laptop, so it would have 4GB RAM, Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Extreme X9000(2.8GHz/800Mhz FSB/6M L2, Ageia Mobile PhysX, Vsita Ultimate etc etc.
I will be purchasing the Dell XPS M1730.
Any advice is appreciated. Thank you in advance.
