    Ssd

    but in another thread (Question about how SSD handles cold weather) where people mentioned OCZ Vertex drives having issues with fairly normal temperatures.... that's way I am looking for suggestion before I waste a half an grand for it.

    - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTX160G 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD) - OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGT160G 2.5" 160GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    or little lower capacity:
    - OCZ Vertex 2 OCZSSD2-2VTXE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)
    - OCZ Agility 2 OCZSSD2-2AGTE120G 2.5" 120GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    also I see they have a pro seria for vertex 2... any advanage for that ones? it more them 2x price from non-pro.
    something like OCZ Vertex 2 Pro OCZSSD2-2VTXP100G 2.5" 100GB SATA II MLC Internal Solid State Drive (SSD)

    Also reading those reviews for Vertex 2 drives make me a little nervious... I can not keep removing my computer from the car once a month for getting that drive replaced.

    It is 35% below of the 5 star reviews, and 21% for 1 and 2 stars.

So I just leave the car on for 10-15 minutes, hit a reset button and the computer fires up. Everything works, touchscreen and all.

    I have heard of Lilliputs crapping out at -10 degrees which makes sense since they're cheaper but everything else is fine. And I imagine you probably wouldn't have any issues if you have a solid state drive.
    Sorry but what Calgary do you live in that hits -50? Maybe Edmonton. But it is very very very rare atleast in the Calgary Alberta I live in for it to hit even -30 (not including windchill)....

    The lowest recorded temperature for Calgary without windchill was -36 celsius. I meant with windchill and I'm aware that doesn't have any affect on non-exothermic objects.
