No, it is designed well for your average user who opens documents and surfs the web. You want access to files rapidly.


That's just it, the average user doesn't use the HDD enough to make this even viable. I mean you shave off 1 second of load time for your Word doc by hearing the thing churning constantly all day long. That's absurd, especially if you consider the HDD being the slowest part of the system and overusing it is stupid. And it top it off, it's one the last mechanical parts of the system and overusing it will shorten its inherit life span due to friction.

I mean you know as well as I do, that's the justification of doing a light-pass compression on large dat files for games. It's quicker to decompress them in memory than to load it from the HDD directly more times that not. The HDD sucks that much, and to abuse it is asinine IMO.

MS can't out-Mac Apple, they should just stick to copying the pros. Poke tongue | ;-P
