If youve been thinking about fast, bootable storage, youve read the stories and seen the reviews; SSDs are hot right now. Not only do they offer tremendous performance and easily outperform hard disk drives, they are more reliable, their prices are dropping and you can get more capacity than ever. If youve got a Mac Pro or older Windows desktop computer, you could just get a couple of 2.5 SSDs (plus necessary adapters) and install them in some empty drive bays (if there are any) and be done with it”but the 3Gb/s SATA interface in your computer wont support fast 6Gb/s SSDs at full speed.
