    solid drives

    Cannot speak for the SSD but Ive used G-Tech drives since working over the pond the last few years and they are very reliable, much better than the cheapo plastic drives out there.

    stocking stuffer?

    oh my god, if this is the kind of thing that finds its way into christmas stocking at your house, I want to be there next chrimbo!

    on a more realistic note.. I have about 6GB of ddr2 667 RAM in 256MB sticks, thanks to all the apple macs we buy then upgrade the RAM ourselves. Any suggestions what to do with it?

    RAID

    Anyone remember when it used to mean "Reliable Array of INEXPENSIVE Disks"? Before the likes of HP, IBM, Sun, EMC and others got their grubby paws on it and quietly changed it to "independent" from "inexpensive" so they could sell monstrously expensive disks as part of their arrays? This is just more of the same. RAID (RAID 5, when "RAID 0" and "RAID 1" were more honestly called "striped" and "mirrored" before the marketing asshats got hold of it and started misleading people that everything was "RAID" this and "RAID" that) was to be used with cheap disks that failed, but you didn't care that they failed because the array just kept working. SSD don't fit that category of "cheap disks".
