No, I don't mean electrical shock. I mean the kind of shock your hard drive goes through when you drop it on the cement.

I was looking at this particular SSD on newegg (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16820227363) and the specifications for shock resistance, it says it's rated for 1500G.

As an aviator, I know that 1500G's is ALOT. Like, really.

Is that really what is means?

Thanks.

That's the magic of solid state hardware. Drop your CPU a few times and it still will work. Kick your PSU around and it still will work.

Also, that 1500G is momentary... as in the moment of impact.

To answer most of your questions: (1) a fridge cannot cool a PC (2) 64-bit OS for over 3.4GB (3) If a PCIe card fits, it should work (4) Resolution, not screen size (5) Report, not respond to Spam (6) Single-Rail/Non-Modular PSUs are not always better than Multi-Rail/Modular (7) Sequential does not matter as much as random for OS drives (8) Requirements come before hardware for servers

About that video,
If the test laptop model has the HD placed in the left side, as mine does, its hardly a fair vibration test. The SSD drive will then be placed in the middle were there really isn't any vibration, while the HDD is getting hammered in the periphery
