I'm still working out the details on purchasing a new MacPro. My Apple sales rep tells me that I can greatly increase the launch speed of applications and the system OS by purchasing 2 hard drives and using Disk Utility to stripe them together into a "software RAID". They claim it will be faster and more reliable than a single SSD. I know I've asked this question before, but the answers were over my head. I don't know anything about SATA raid cards, or SSD's except for their benefits. But I'm pretty sure I can stripe two drives together and make a software RAID. The question is, whether it's a good idea. Reliable? Speed? A friend told me that he remembered hearing that it was a bad idea to use two-drives for your boot disk. But he couldn't remember why. Any advice would be appreciated.
