If you want to have 1 HD for OS only like I do you could get a Western Digital Raptor the price is a little higher unlike other HD but the hard drive runs at 10,000RPM and if your looking for more performance is worth it.

agreed, what i would do is get one 36.6 raptor drive and use that as ur prime drive, and buy another HD as a secondary drive to store everything else like games and such

That makes sense, ill be paying like a good 50-60 bucks more but it seems worth it if itll show an increase in performance. Plus the 80gb drive would have gone mainly unused anyway. ok 36 gigs.

i remember my logitech ex1150 (i think that was the model) wireless keyboard had them
dont spedn that much money on a keyboard for macrokeys
yeah you can find total crap keyboards too if you want. Its about the whole package, and logitech is good at the whole package. The G11/G15 offers 2 USB ports, illuminated keys, 18 X 3 Macros, Macro on the fly ability, gaming key windows disable, nice set of media keys, etc etc. Far worth it for the money, got many awards for best keyboard.
