I sure would like it to be stable. It would be a perfect addition to upgrade the old laptop. I already installed a 1TB ssd drive. Put this in the slot and it could possibly stave off a new purchase.

And on my Apple //e the floppy was only 128KB! Also I spent about $100 extra for the board that doubled my RAM to 128KB. The first hard drive for the //e was 5MB for something like $500. Now one RAW photo is 30MB.

that is a very good idea. if it is as stable as typical SSD, I would do that for sure.

My first home computer was an Atari 400. I couldn't stand the keyboard and took it back to the store and traded it in on an Atari 800. Disk drives weren't around then and I had to use cassette tapes for storage. IIRC, the first disk drives for them held 90kb and were single side only. How things have changed!

My current desktop has 6 drives. Two are SSD, the boot 1TB and the primary picture storage 2TB. The four drives total 25TB and are used for programs, video, music and backup - lots of back up!
