if that's true then I would get a Runcore over the Stec. The write times on the Runcore are much better, and the read are not much different between them, from what I've seen on my machine anyway.

Exactly. Unless you get a special combo price on the Mini9, the one to get is a 4gb with 512mb ram and Ubuntu.. Upgrade to a 64gb RunCore and stick 2gb stick of ram in it. You have a better machine than Dell even offers to build.
I read earlier today where someone with XP and NTFS just upgraded to a 32gb runcore and found that it was significantly better than the STEC it had before.

Tired of wondering if your Mini9 is doing ANYTHING? - Add a HDD Activity LED

I have XP and NTFS and upgrading to the RunCore 64GB drive shows a definite performance improvement.
