I've had a 128GB toshiba SSD on my T400 and have just bought a new 240GB intel SSD (335 series). I want to have a clean new dual boot install of ubuntu and windows 7.
With my SATA II system, the new intel SSD should probably be 1.3-1.5 times faster on buffer read and at least twice faster on cached read. Now I need to know which one to mount for my home directory and which one to use for the OS installs.
Option 1) Use faster SSD for windows+linux+home and use the other SSD for extra space.
Option 2) Use faster SSD for windows+linux and mound home on the other SSD.
Option 3) User slower SSD for windows+linux and mount home on the other SSD.
Option 4) Some type of RAID array setup.
Typical programs on linux: Chrome, Thunderbird (heavy), occasional torrent download. Windows: Starcraft II.
