Random access reads and writes within a megabyte chunk of the drive – a more realistic figure if you’re interested in things like database lookups, video-file seeking and swap-file operation – averaged 8. But a laptop drive will cost you a lot more per megabyte. A PC that has plenty of RAM in it won’t be hitting the swap file all the time , but it’ll still use it heavily when, for instance, you suddenly switch back to a big program that you haven’t used for some time, and whose giant chunk of memory space has thus been craftily swapped out to make more room for other apps and disk caching. Unless that other drive is really outrageously fast, the HDUI’s bulk transfer rate should be more than enough to feed it, or to receive data as fast as the other drive can send it. That gives you 5.
