But as I sit back, I realize that, now days most computers have one hard drive and maybe an external or an SSD and one hard drive. And I've also noticed that people are stepping down from space hogging super computers, down to modest middle of the road computers. And after much thought I'm happy with my new design for my new computer. (128GB SSD and 500GB hard drive, with my 1TB external) We are also building a network based backup computer, it'll run windows so it can be used as a desktop, it'll have two 1TB hard drives and one 500GB. (Why a 500GB on an OS drive?) Because, I'll still use it for miscellaneous computing, and have some programs like firefox, an office suite and some other programs installed on it.
