that was fast thanks I'll go with the i5. Is there any hard drive that is close to velociraptor in performance with a cheaper price tag?
The samsung f3 500gb is new and only uses one platter. It is the fastest 500gb model out and it's cheap @ $50-55.
It's not faster than the velociraptor..but a much better value. If you want pure performance get a SSD, it's the single best upgrade you can do imo.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822152181&Tpk=samsung%20f3%20500
