Or just buy bigger SD cards :lol:

And a better computer to process those files!

Photography is so pitifully masochistic. :D

Oooh boy, don't tell that to my Mac Mini. It was a gift, so I'm holding off on building a PC. I'm also planning a winter trip to Europe (one of the big reasons for moving to the E-M5), so most of the funds are going there.

But when I get back, maybe, just maybe! :D

I think it was a bit over $100 for 16gb of mini RAM.


My village called. I was told that they missed me.

Speedotron users, untie!

And I just assumed you couldn't upgrade these things... Although in retrospect it seems like it'd be pretty simple.

I hate all of you! It looks like that another thing for the leftover 5D money to go to.

Consider yourself lucky -- I couldn't upgrade to LR4 on XP, so had to bite the bullet and get a whole new computer. I mean, geez, it was only 6 years old.... and now that I have LR4 I can't find an OM-D anywhere!

"Only" six years old? My rule of thumb for my employer where I do IT work is 1 machine year = 20 human years. Your computer was 120 years old, lucky to be alive!

So would constantly Frankenstein-ing in new parts be considered life support? :)

I'm afraid so...

If you can afford it, I would highly recommend a SSD drive as the primary, be it a laptop or desktop. Recently bought a laptop with an i7 processor and SSD drive. With Lightroom it runs circles around a 3-year old 8-processor Zeon desktop, both with 8GB RAM. Amazing! Store your photos on a conventional hard drive, but run the O/S and apps on the SSD.

Well, the Mac Mini can only hold one hard drive, so I'd need to store all my photos on an external connected via USB, which I think would be a bit finicky. If I was building a PC or could afford a Mac tower, that'd definitely be the plan. A friend of a friend upgraded to a monstrous SSD recently and said he could get Windows 7 booted and running in under 10 seconds, which just sounds crazy.

Yes, the boot-up times are amazing. On the laptop, I do store the photos, some 250 GB worth, on an external USB 3.0 drive. The problem with SSD drives is the price, still darned expensive per GB.

Would there be any limits on processing speed with it connected via USB, though?

(Also, I found out my Mini is limited to a max of 8GB. Yay, less money!)

Don't know the exact speed capabilities of 3.0., but it is several times faster than 2.0, depending on the drive/interface. Some external drives profess to take full advantage of 3.0., but do not. I go on a retailer's website such as Newegg and read the user reviews. I highly recommend you do two 3.0. drives, one for backup. As is said, it is not a matter of if a hard drive will fail, only when.
