Good to know.
How about the number of writes? Would it be a good idea to move microsoft outlook and firefox downloads folder to my harddrive?
Since i recieve email daily and also download lots of stuff like drivers, jpegs, templates, etc. which would cause a lot of writes

I was looking at 64gb ssd size because my 500gb hdd currently has 60gb partition for OS and its more than enough even with all programs like adobe and ms office
