Don't portable apps run considerably slower than if it installed on the SSD
? I'd tried using portable apps with my eee, but found the performance slow down to be too much. My eee only had a 4GB SSD
, and I had XP SP3 (not nlite'd), updates, firefox, and at one point Office Home '07 and all that used somewhere around 2.5GB. (I had turned page file off for space savings.) That was enough to convince me to keep apps on the SSD
and data on the SD card.
But to each his own. I realize SSD
space isn't the only consideration.
