    I have a Pavillion DV-7 series. The 6010EO model, with lower specs, of course. Really nice for a laptop, and having two GPUs that you can switch on the fly if you want. HP has really stepped up their laptop lineup.

    Using 1600x900 natively, 17.3" I think.

    Not too shabby though I'm not sure about having 2 different gfx cards in a system. Seems like it would make performance worse. I'm running an ASUS G51J laptop with an Intel i7-720QM processor with a Nvidia GTS 360m. Only problem I have with my laptop is the temps are a bit high which is normal for a gaming laptop.


    Desktop: i5 3570k @ 4.5ghz, 12gb DDR 3 memory, 2x EVGA GTX670 4gb

    Laptop: Intel i7 3610QM, 12GB DDR3 memory, GTX 670m 3gb

    You mean you won't be playing DVD's in your computer anymore? That's a nice idea to convert ones DVD into a HD bay. I wonder if one can add extra SD card slots there too? Cyb

    well as far a dvds I can buy a external Usb dvd case and make me bddvd drive portable, thus I have the best of both worlds.
    So long as the device is the size of a laptop sata hdd it should fit.

    My reason for doing this is that I don't wish to keep saving Temp files on my ssd.

    I wish I could add the WD 1TB passport hdd, but the way WD built the usb right into the drive is a real bummer

    With how competitive drive stuff has become and the allowing of companies to gobble up each other so carelessly it leads to some nasty consequences.

    One of the nasty ones is that they tend to 'optimize' away things. It's cheaper to directly have the DSP in most drives connect to a USB 2.0+ port than to use a bridge IC to convert from SATA to USB (that's a few more IC's). Although USB technically treats it magically as a 'block' device it's still yet another translation layer. I don't know what the limitations of USB block devices are.

    USB has some advantages but some of the weakest part of USB is not the drive support. It's sequential device support (thank MS for that).

    As for temp files, are you planning on putting your swap and the like onto the HDD?

    The SD card standard technically will work with OTP memory as well. If you make an image of your system data and image it onto an SD card, that would protect it from pretty much ANY kind of crap.

    Of course upgrading and hot fixes would be very difficult.

    Let me know how things go, I'm curious. I've had stuff with HD drives on them for a long time, they always fail eventually. I'm curious how long the SD system will last.

    yeah and most of the time they just degrade the items that they say are improved.

    ahh yes. {windows has determined that all drivers are up to date} So long as windows say it's up to date it must be true, what a joke.

    As for temp files, are you planning on putting your swap and the like onto the HDD?
    I don't need swap files as I have 16GB of ddr3. I plan to place folders like my downloads folder, texture editing folders, ext...
    just to remove some read/wrights from my ssd.

    I'm sorry this setup will be for a conventional hdd for now, but I would like to try the SD device out sometime.
    Right now I need something that can handle the read and wrights of large file transfers without burning up my ssd.
