According to my dad, his new computer is so fast that the slowest part of opening Firefox is double clicking. When he found out how to add the shortcut to the single clicking quicklaunch menu, he exclaimed that the time to get on the Internet just dropped in half!
The highlights of their order includes:
- Intel Core i7 920 Quad Core Processor
- 8GB DDR3 RAM
- Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition
- OCZ Vertex 120GB 2.5IN SATA2 Solid State Disk Flash Drive SSD
I’m curious to give it a try and see how Windows 7 performs and if using a solid state drive is really as great as the reviews seem to indicate. The thing that intrigues me the most is the idea that a solid state drive can’t crash because it doesn’t have any moving parts.
My parents said that as fast as the computer is, the boot time could be faster. Their non-scientific time trial indicates that a cold boot takes about 45 seconds.
