    Hey all!

    I have a Mac Pro which has 4 internal hard drive slots. Currently I have two internal drives; the System Drive and a Windows Drive. I have multiple external Firewire drives - however, before I buy a new drive I was wondering which would be 'faster' in shuttling the information to the processor an internal drive or external? My guess would be that internal drive.

    Also I am aware that you're not suppose record on to your system drive so no need to warn me about that. :wink:

    Thanks for the help!

    do not record to your system drive.
    apples to apples, internal drives are better
