    hi, thanks for help ..

    i have 2 ssd's, on the 60gb (vertex3) i wanna have the system (lion), but what parts should be also there to get full speed as the 2nd ssd (160gb) is half as fast.

    so how to part the data on these two ?

    at the moment there is the original 500gb snail in the mini i7 ...

    Install Lion on the 60GB Vertex 3. After install move the user directories to the second 160GB SSD. This is in System Settings - User Accounts - Click Advanced (I believe as I'm on my iPhone).

    OSX and applications will take advantage of the Vertex 3 and documents and media storage will trade on the larger slower SSD. This should be really fast as it works well with regular HDDs.
