    Unless you have a really fast pc and superfast SSD, you will barely be able to detect difference between SATA II and SATA III.

    I know, Fafhrd, but at the same time, we didn't know just how slow those systems were, since they were so much faster than their predecessors.

    Hmmm, on second thought, could I maybe upgrade the RAM to something faster? Probably not . . . but if I could . . .

    I hope not, Cereberus! The discussion, in my not so humble opinion, has degraded to "looking down" on someone who doesn't share my/your/their views on when the week starts. It is, in fact, irrelevant, since every week has seven days. And that's a fact, Jack!

    I'll have to look to see how much RAM the dv9700 has. I did put an SSD drive in it when I thought the original HDD might be bad.

    No Linux, Marty! I've thought many times that I'd like to try Linux, but haven't gotten there yet.

    Agree. I have a Vista era hp laptop with 4Gb memory into which I placed two 512 Tb hard drives. It is the most reliable of my insider machines. It's a little slower than newer computers, but barely detectable.

    Well, you can, but it's not pretty. 16215 in a VM.
