Yes, an average user would have trouble maintaining a RAID array should problems occur, good point. I agree with you, from my point of view, and given that the prices have come down, that I would buy the larger drives. There are many users who do have the skills to run RAID though, but dont have a use for the extra space. I'd be one of those! I'd only buy them now because the price difference is so small anyway.Again though, a few months ago there was a much larger price difference for the 500G drives, and it was a worthwhile saving at the time of posting. Your space requirements are exceptionally large for ANY user, and most users would not have got any benefit from the additional space. Always good to futureproof, but it didnt make sense to add 15% to the cost of the computer when it simply isnt necessary for most people.
