    It will work as an alternative. However, I don't suggest putting Windows XP on it. The device is too slow for practical purposes. If you don't mind waiting fifteen minutes or longer for your carpc to turn on, then it's ok.

    How about this one.Are CF cards speedy enough for Windows XP?

    And being able to deal with two cards it may speed up a little bit more, don't u think?

    NO. Not quite there yet, but they are coming close to being capable. Bear in mind that the fastest Compact Flash cards are very expensive, and run approximately 30-35MB per second maximum throughput. If you were to raid0 two together, the read/write speeds will approach that of a typical mid range hard drive.

    So essentially, you're better off buying a VelociRaptor 10,000 rpm.

    If you want top speed without a spinning platter, use an solid state disk (SSD).
