@Witchdoctor, obviously you’re not understand the article…

32gb is easily enough for XP + most common software + some games. XP(3.4gb), Office 2007(700mb), other apps prob less than 1gb. Still gives you alot of space to play with. If you want to store media just get an external normal hard drive. This is great news and my next laptop will have one of these drives :slight_smile:
