This link is for "Small Business Owners". I opened an account last week when the similar offer came out for "Home Users". When I tried to order this one the site wouldn't accept my password. I'm assuming I would have to open a SBA before letting me get this latest deal. Is that what you had to do? Anybody else run into this problem?
Just ordered one! Less than five minutes, $146.xx poorer (tax and shipping), and it's on the way. I have a SBA though.
I didn't know how slow my 4200 RPM drives were on my 6805 and 6811 until I just used PerfectDisk to defrag them for the first time. PAINFUL!!! Where it took 2:34 to defrag my desktop with an 80 GB drive with moderate fragmentation and 54 GB of usage, it took 4:15 for my 6805 and 3:47 for my 6811 with moderate fragmentation and 47 GB of used space.
I'll let you know if the 7200 RPM drive helps.
