    Simplest thing to do is to drop the SSD.

    Yes, I know. Everybody wants an SSD. Otherwise, you could save a little on the PSU. You could drop the Blu-Ray drive and get less expensive memory.

    But the only thing that would leave your core capabilities untouched would be the SSD.
  2. I really didn't want to come to that conclusion :( whats a really good HDD or hybrid that has good performance?
  3. Also do you think it would be worth while upgrade to i7? or just wait to ivy bridge and buy an ssd then ;)
