So will any 2.5" SSD SATA fit in my new laptop or do I need an SSD that has a special SATA adaptor designed for laptops? I have worked on laptops in the past but that was years before SATA.

Who cares about some score? What that score means anyway? Give us the real numbers which would make sense - the read/write speed!

it's possible to get speeds nearly doubled by RAID-0-ing 2 drives, i would guess you could take the read/write speed and multiply it by 11 if it's raid-0? damn.

Anyone else wishing they got to work in that lab?

I wouldn't mind working in that lab one bit...  I wouldn't mind working in the MaxPC labs either though :D

  This should be an user event not a corporate one.With the money they can throw at a system, how could they not win?

That's nice and all, but I'm thinking they could be beaten pretty handily with a couple of OCZ Z-Drives with the 8x PCIe interface. And when I say handily, I mean bitch slapped like a red headed step child. Can anyone tell me if my thoughts are wrong on this?

You can't boot from those z drives, other then that they are smokin' fast.

Not true, "The Z-Drive SSD is bootable and takes the SATA bottleneck out of the
equation by employing a high-speed PCI-Express architecture coupled with
a compact enterprise-grade RAID array." taken from: www.cdrinfo.com/sections/news/Details.aspx?NewsId=25975

Provided that's accurate, you could use these drives to both boot and in a raid array.
