[citation][nom]yzfr1guy[/nom]Great Idea! 20Gig is perfect for OS install.[/citation]Is 20G enough with windows bloat? Or how about dual boot?

[citation][nom]pabeader[/nom]win 7 OS is only 3.5 gig. just make sure everything else goes to data drive.[/citation]How did you manage to trim it so much? Mine's 17.7 GB (only the Windows folder) and it is a recent installation (about 3 months). Windows 7 Professional x64

i wondered why this kind of thing didn't happen sooner. i had this idea about 5 years ago

i have always wanted something like this.

expect to see os bundles where os is preinstalled, which may be a bonus.

I like this idea, you know that just down the road higher storage numbers will be available at about the same price so if we bide our time plenty of affordable versions of this implementation will be available .

I wonder if the OEMs like HP, Lenovo, and others will be far behind in offering this in their laptops?

[citation][nom]Transsive[/nom]My Windows 7 folder (2 years old) is 22GB... maybe perfect for XP.[/citation]
Its true 20GB isn’t enough for everyone.

Presumably the idea is for it to be used in tandem with the z68 chipset's SSD caching abilities, rather than as a system drive.

am i the only one that thinks it's so damn close to the CPU and primary gfx slot, some serious thermal abuse there.....

Good point, the proximity is awfully close.
