For the ultimate in reliability, go with a solid state drive (SSD). SSDs have no moving parts, and are 2-6 times faster thant the fastest laptop hard drive.

All MPG Pro Laptops have the option of dual internal drives, which can join forces to suit your particular needs for enhanced capacity, performance, or reliability.

Choose dual solid state drives, dual hard drives, or one of each. Popular choices include the folllowing:

SSD reliability and c apacity

The enterprise-grade solid state drives we choose for RAID have 28% over-provisioning for long-term performance and reliability (most other brands have 0% over provisioning!). Hence 200GB instead of 240GB, 400GB instead of 480GB, etc.

For a single volume, or dual individual volume setups, models with 7% over-provisioning (OP) remain incredibly durable and robust, and are still hugely preferable to alternative brands with 0% over-provisioning. These models available at 120/240/480GB capacity.

Interior view

Shown below, a 17" MPG Pro Laptop with dual OWC 200GB Mercury Extreme solid state drives. One is mounted in the standard bay at upper left, and the other is mounted in the optical bay. The 8GB of memory is at center, as two 4GB modules.

The whole setup is neat and tidy, with no moving parts! The optical drive has been removed, and an external optical drive should be considered with your MPG Pro Laptop.
