Final Thoughts and Conclusions

If I were purchasing a car today for something that will last a long time, I would look at a diesel-powered vehicle with a manual transmission. If I were building a computer today that is designed to last as long as possible, I would build it with a spinning hard drive. However, if you are reading this article the odds are you are going to replace an SSD long before it would fail, and those issues simply do not concern you. Just like, if I were buying a car today (and of course had the income to support it), I would not purchase the car that I have, but rather opt for a German-built sports car (like the BMW ///M3) or something ridiculous like the new Shelby Mustang.

Cleanse Complete

So do I feel that purchasing the SSD was the right move? Of course so! The first time I booted the machine and did not have to wait for the desktop to load was really an incredible feeling. Now, some of these issues regarding space could be negated if you purchase a larger SSD, and prices are coming down on those units. But with a little bit of maintenance and a little bit of time, you can have a significantly faster machine that you can enjoy every day.

Very nice writeup. Even though the hdd in my MacBook Pro is a 500GB, I think I'm going to check out some of these programs to make sure every thing is running nice.

Not necessarily a convert Wes; a Mac will always be my day-to-day machine. But if I want to game, I need a PC. And if I want to write more for your audience I need a PC. That's all. :)

heh, well it is good timing on this writeup as I am working on my first mod project which will also be a hackintosh build . Wouldn't call myself a Mac convert, but a new challenge is always fun :)
