What Windows machine ships with less than a 250gb hard drive? Only Macs ship with smaller capacity drives!Boggles the mind that there now can be more RAM in a system that what many Windows PCs shipped with in terms of HDD space
Thanks for that rendering info, anyone else have any contributions?
Several programs I use load their datasets into RAM for swift access, and getting them not to is...tiresome.Anyone gonna for it, and if so, please elaborate as to what exactly will be using all that RAM?
Macs are the ones that offer the smaller drives. Windows machines always offered at least 50% more capacity even for the most basic machines unless you are referring to netbooks!I was refering to not too long ago many Windows machines (and probably some Macs too) shipped with 40-80GB HDD's as standard. So yeah, mind boggling much right?
Hahaha a Classic, classic, though I must have missed the Mac Classic debut in 2004 when I bought my eMachines (still kicking, solid machines) with a 60GB HDDTell that to my Mac Classic and its 20MB hard drive, or my old AT&T PC6300 with its 5MB half-height 5.25" hard rive.
That's not the point. Overcharging for 1/3 of the current market capacity is! Especially when it comes to the non Pro machines that is more of a hassle to upgrade internal components!The machines at my workplaces ship in with 160GB drives; it's really all that's needed since you're only suppose to have so much stuff stored locally.
