A note about Notebook Drives

I’m looking into which notebook drive is the best bang for my buck.  Then I arrived at a thought.  Since notebook drives, non-SSDs, are about the price of a Western Digital Passport External Drive, I can load the new OS (probably an n-Lite version of XP) by USB, then crack it open and swap out the drive in my Asus Eee PC 1000H.  Yea…there’s just one problem.  To get a performance boost, I’m going with a WD 7200 RPM drive.  The Passport drives are 5400 RPM.  Just thought I would mention it before any of you starting thinking about it.

On a side note, I’m thinking about creating a dual-boot hard drive, XP and Ubuntu.  What is Ubuntu?  It’s a user friendly version of Linux with all the features.  http://www.ubuntu.com
