I've been sussing out solid options for a new mac mini setup and initially thought upgrading to a SSD drive would be my only option. Then I saw how many USB 3.0 ports there were and thought what if I could make the most of those ports. So my question is would it be possible to run OSX and all my applications off a single 128GB USB 3.0 thumb drive? This way I could even have a setup where I have 256GB(two 128GB USBs) of flash memory plus the 500GB HDD stock storage. This might even be cheaper than buying a single SSD drive. Then on top of that I'd have the flexibility of carrying around my data on those USBs if I needed. That would be a dream! If this is a possibility what would the speed differences be like between the SATA connector to a SSD vs the USB 3.0 setup I've just outlined?
