I'm moving to OS X on my 300 mHz Wallstreet, but before I do that, I
want to move to a larger, and more importantly, faster and quieter hard
drive than the 8 gig original.
A 40GB drive is more than enough, perhaps more than I'll ever need.
I'm looking at the Toshiba MK4019GAX and the IBM/Hitachi Travelstar 40
GNX. I've seen conflicting reviews on which is the fastest drive. One
review said the Toshiba was slightly noisier. The Toshiba has a 16MB
buffer, while the Travelstar has 8MB. I don't know how big a difference
hard drive buffers ...
