Default wow...1 Tb hard drive

This may be old to some, but looks like a company is selling a 1 Tb HD!

Unfortunately, hard drives don't help much in the search for primes. We need a 1 TFlop processor, lol.

1 Tb?! I can't even hope to come anywhere close to filling up a 40 Gb hard drive...

Try running a large NFS factorization. It's not hard to use tens of gigabytes. A single file can easily exceed 5Gb.

I'm frequently using VMWare, and these images can easily get to several gigabyte.

Save a few of these and a big part of the harddrive space is gone.

A 2 to 3GB swap file doesn't help either.

Yes, and if you prefer lossless audio, not lossy (MP3-like) then 80gb is really not enough

I have an 80, 2 120s, a 160, a 175, and a 200 in my machine. (855 Jigabytes)
Free space: 66.4, 71.8, 54.1, 45.1, 29.7, 49.3 (316.4 Gigabytes)

Can't exactly afford the $1200 price-tag though.

Hi,

Many manufacturers of these new high-capacity drives (>100 gb) have
dropped their 3-years warranty to 1-year recently. I wonder about the reliability of such beasts.

They are great for real PC based video editing. I actual suggested that one be purchased for such.
