ProMax (got one of those in my G4). Still only room for 4 drives -- still that is half a TB of data (using 120 GB 7200 RPM drives).

I already know that *nix has tons of features. I like to thank the people who created *nix. x86 computers can handle about 8 gigabytes of memory, several drives, and a dozen PCI slots. Since serial IDE came out, IDE hard drives can be several inches or centimeters away from the controller instead of being 18 inches or 45.72 centimeters away. x86 computers can handle more than one display, but its up to the user if he or she wants two to infinite monitors. I know that computers can not handle infinite monitors because of both OS and computer's addressing limitations. Any computer platform can have these features, but its either the motherboard manufacture or main platform company to include them.

BTW, there are 160 gigabyte hard drives.

ahem nope there at 200 just being relesed soon.. i work ina retail store and i read this stuff every day.. 120 for 7200 i believe but why have a 7200 when yu can have a 5400 with more reliability and less heat.. i would go for the reliabilty more than heat and more less stable drive out of the 50 we had in stock this year i bet more than 50% went back due to errors or failure errors from over heating and ect ect things and they drives get cooled properly.. maxtor and fujitsu is our main brand some time wd..

I'll go for the speed (made a noticeable diff on my 450 G4/OS X). We haven't had nearly the reject rate you guys have had. Maybe 5% (of drives i have sold it has been 0%). Are those PCs beating the drives to death?

I rather go for speed such as 10000 RPM hard drives, but those are only found on SCSI or scuzzy.

Its MS Windows and users don't like to defrag their hard drive(s) every month. Also computer users don't like to wait 20 to 30 seconds before restarting.
