OK, so which do you all think will be a faster gig:
A PC with an 8GB SD Flash Memory connected via SD to IDE Adapter
A HDD (also depending which kind), I was hoping to compare an older 8.4GB HDD, and also other lines of 5400rpm, 7200rpm, 10k rpm, and newer 3.0gbps SATA HDD types.
I wish I had the time to test and the spare equipment, but wanted to see what educated guesses and feedback everyone will give first.
I am thinking of throwing a simple PC together for the sole purpose of internet access in a summer house and it will need very trivial - basic WindowsXP, Office, Browser, antivirus, anti-spyware as a total list of installed apps.
