"The Unipod does offer IDE access that outperforms the internal IDE interface"... :cooldude: I'm told that the PC hard disks tend to wear out faster because it's system works the HD harder to retrieve both files/programmes and system instruction all from the HD. :rolleyes: As I understand, RISC OS is more 'Efficient' with it's instruction in Flash Rom, hence the HD doesn't need to work harder giving RISC OS HDs (generally speaking) a longer life span. :-o Therefore, in the article statement I mentioned first, would a high performance IDE in this Unipod work the RISC OS HD faster, thus giving it a shorter life span? :blush: Finally, does a much larger memory (like the 192Mb RAM, 60GB HD in the article) installed on a computer, increase the :sparky: speed performance of the machine? Forgive my comments for I am not technically computer minded, :bowdown: just putting together info as I try to figure all this out! :wink: Cheers, Steve.
