    Yea, like d-dave said, go for SSD all day.  HDD still has its uses (especially for mainframes) but there aren't many.
    I found this off Tom's:  http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00LMXBOP4/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pC_S_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=XHEIU2IZ4ZXL&coliid=I2RLRMUAE04CLB&psc=1&tag=viglink20237-20
    They had a few benchmarks on some newer models on cnet and techradar worth looking into it seems.
    I'm not sure on your RAM spec/requirements - but this popped up based on what you mentioned:

    8GB should be more than enough, and RAM is a very cheap component.
    Keeps you under $200 and should get you up to speed with where you need to be.  As for additional storage, I always opt for cloud.  But if you need the comfort level of a handheld, there's always the scalable:

    I still get the paper (I have no idea why since I mainly just do the crossword) and today they only sent us the main section and nothing else.  Completely threw off my morning Saturday routine.

    He's a really big part of their pass rush rotation so is a pretty big set back for them.
    Having followed Jax the past few weeks or so, they could end up being a playoff contender this year and are certainly no pushover for Carolina.

    Nice to see Janeane Garofalo found another niche after acting.

  5. Sapper added a post in a topic Historical Correlation between 3rd Preseason Game and Season Record (for last 12 seasons)   

    I'd be interested in looking at the OLS using the data from only the 1st 3 quarters.  Some games seem like they could have swung based on differential.
