ESATA, SSD and Virtual Machine Goodness (improved)

About a year ago I posted some details on how I setup my environment for each client: https://ledtalks.wordpress.com/2011/10/07/esata-virtual-machines-goodness/

Today I finally upgraded and bought a few Solid State III 2.5″ Drives, the specific one is here: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=91218

I have to kick myself for not doing this sooner. Bootup is much faster and opening Visual Studio and debugging my web applications is twice as fast (perceived, I didn’t actually time things). I should be getting a new laptop from work soon, but this will hold me off for a while. The other nice thing is I can suspend my VM images extremely quickly and the resume just as fast.
