I did realize the 8gig was pretty small.
I have another laptop with like and 80 or 160gig HDD.
Now I am finding that I actually have to be careful not to fill it up, never had to before.
Our first digital camera came with an 8MB Smartmedia Card...lol...
I have an 8gig USB Stick thats smaller than the Smartmedia Card, I have seen up to 256gigs now. Kinda high ($730).
I think the SSD
is actually a good thing, just screwy that the mini uses a special kind.
The SDHC cards..Newegg has a 16 gig for around $30.
The 32gigs, are around 60.
