On second thoughts, are there any wizards out there that can advise me on an ideal setup. i'm crossing my fingers that my drives don't go down anytime soon, and i'm planning on backing my vids and pics up onto dvd's as i type.
i'm stuck with this laptop for at least another year it looks like, apr 09 i think. Rentsmart- long story.
basically, i want as fast and secure as possible with the limited offerings of said laptop.
