1) Do you currently own an SSD? Are you planning on purchasing one or more in the near future?
No, I don't currently own an SSD. I would love to purchase some in the near future, 2+ for a ridiculously fast raid 0..
2) If you’re planning on purchasing an SSD, which brand(s) are you considering and why (price, performance, reliability, brand, etc.)?
Intel SSDs are the only drives I'd consider purchasing as they are known for being especially well designed, though prohibitively expensive. From benchmarks I've read online and otherwise, Intel drives have the best performance and reliability by far, however as previously noted their price accurately reflects such characteristics.
3) How often do you purchase a new PC (every 12 months or less, every 12-18 months, 18-24 months, 2-3 years, over 3 years)?
I rarely purchase an entire new computer, instead I purchase new components each year. I usually retain the same case and PSU, while replacing CPU, RAM, motherboard, and sometimes disk drives. The last few years I have kept my drives while waiting for a good deal on some nice SSDs. I also upgrade my video card each year.
4) [Canadian residents] What is 125 plus 45 divided by 3 minus 13?
I live in New Orleans; the good ole USA.
