I got my 6860, and I had a question to ask all of you. I am going to purchase an extra hard drive. Should I go with a) $105 320gb 5400 rpm drive with the stock in raid-0 = 640gb total or b) $99 160gb 7200 rpm boot drive + 320gb 5400 rpm as data protection and media storage. The parameters for this decision are, will this affect game play, not game load, speeds. Did I mention "HOLY CRAP I LOVE THIS LAPTOP" Thank you always for your expertise.

I would say raid 0 with the standard 320 + another. Keep the heat down and keep a faster speed than having just the single 7200 for boot/games or whatever. I have 2 250's in mine and I get over 60MB/s sustained over the network writing large files :0 The gateway recovery disc will work with raid since it is just a vista oem disc, but make sure you either burn the driver disc, or download the drivers or a lot of the devices will not work straight after the format.
