They are not regular anything.
They are for notebooks, 2.5" and they have tiny tiny SSD "hyrid" used as fast cache that "intelligently" (not sure I believe it) stores the most used files in SSD. Similar to Apple Fusion drives.
Looking for a whiz bang. Stick to tried and true. Want SSD? get a Samsung 840 or 840 Pro. Want an enterprise drive? 5-yr warranted 7.2K you know where those are.
NAS RED are another in the lineup along with Black.
And there is the $220 1TB WD VelociRaptor, 10K. Another class of drives.
Hatter can you please help me out.
I am so confused with SO much conflicting information going on.
Earlier you helped me to upgrade my 2006 Mac Pro 1,1 to 32GB of RAM, which I did, and it's all working.
My hardware specs say: 2.66GHZ, 2 processors, 4 cores, and 32GB 667 MHz DDR2 FB-DIMM which I bought under your recommendation.
My OS is 10.6.8
I bought all of this ram to USE it but the main program I'm using (Vienna Ensemble Pro) is running our of memory EXTREMELY quickly.
Then I look at how much ram is being used in Activity Monitor when I've maxed out the ram that program, and it's barely using a quarter of my RAM - I have 25.26GB RAM free!!!
So then I read about needing to run in 64 bit Kernel, probably to use all the RAM - is this correct???
And I also read that I can't run a Mac Pro 1,1 in 64bit? - is that correct???
So is this RAM just NEVER going to be used by this computer?
What are my options???
Please help me out here!
Many thanks lllaass
This is a little bit above my expertise ... I'm not quite sure how I install it ... is it saying I need to update to Mountain Lion? I'm not sure if I really wanna to do that either tho ...
I might give it a go tho, updating,
But might there be any other options?
If I can't get it updated, is there a way or place you know to get money for old computers? I might end up buying a newer tower and just using Migration Assistant or something ...
I hope I can use my old ram in a new machine too?
Any advice would be great thanks!!!
