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
