    Hello, I wanted to ask this question fresh since specs change so much between revisions. I just got a 2.26ghz mac mini "standard configuration". I also ordered a 1 terabyte g-drive from g-technologies and plan to hook it up via fw800.
    My question is : should I try to reinstall the entire operating system on to the g drive and boot from and use that as the main drive, or should I just learn how to configure all my programs to save to the g-drive. I have tons of dvds with video and data on them because I ran out of space long ago and so I am finally going to have some space so I am excited about having the g drive.

    I ask these questions because I have read in the past that the internal mac mini drives actually slow down the system, however I dont know if this is still true, I know the bus speed is faster etc in the new ones
