I'm not upset!! I'm just a little disappointed... that Chris does so little to help MS in getting it's new failure to fly. While everybody else is busy trying to convince themselves they like the new MS OS, here's Chris playing in the Linux corner pretending he's still loyal to MS, when clearly he has Linux leanings and associations...

I plan to purchase my first solid state drive this Christmas for my Mint 13 setup.
I'm not seeing a lot of good deals with the 3.5" drives... whats with that?
I could always get a 2.5" for my desktop but I will need a special carriage to hold it.

Yes the 2.5 come with a bracket to let them install in 3.5 slots. That way they sell to lap tops and desktop users.

I actually have adapters for 3.5" to 5.25"
So now I could have two adapters to mount:
2.5" to 3.5" to 5.25"
