    Just swapped out my wimpy 80 gb hd for a 160 GB Hitachi drive. How can I benchmark this hard drive to make sure everything is good to go?

    I just ran xbench, which number should I look at? The very first (top) one?

    If so, 110.67. I have no clue what the number means...(lower the better? higher the better?)

    Cool! Well I have a Seagate 7200rpm 100GB though. I was only able to get 92.84. After OSX install and a few apps, I have 80.52GB free.
