    Anything yet? I mean anything ... even one that just slides-in and sits there for decoration.



    BTW why doesn't my Safari Autofill work with log-in here?

    S ATA adaptor vs regular firewire/USB

    I have a question. Is it better to use an external HD via Serial ATA adaptor than just using the regular Firewire? It seems S ATA has the faster connection because it is connected more directly to Mac than the regular Firewire/USB ports. I have the 15" PB and it has the card slot. I am interested in using one of those S ATA adaptor if I can benefit from faster speed.

    Generally speed is in this order, slowest connection first:
    USB2 ~ FW400
    FW800
    eSATA

    Really depends on what you planning to use the external drive for. If you're doing DV video editing, then a FW400 should be OK, if you're transferring huge amounts of data (like daily backups) then eSATA external connection should be of benefit.
