  1. yay homework!
  2. to save info.
  3. It's better than these, lol!

  4. Are you trying to ask about the difference between the 2? IDE was phased out by SATA drives. SATA hookups are generally a cleaner way of installing drives. I prefer SATA over IDE but if you look on ebay IDE drives sell for dirt cheap. If you still have a decent machine with IDE you could continue to use IDE, i don't really see a difference in performance but then i think the higher capacity drives like the 1TB only functions with SATA... could just be better read/write performance.
