While I nominally do not like the idea of two drives as it most
certainly will cause more noise, one nice longer term option you can
look toward is that if you put two drives in today, using one as a
system drive and the second as an audio drive, should you get
interested later you can take the audio drive, place it in a 1394
drive enclosure and move the drive external to the box. Once you do
this you can use your Ardour sessions on other machines as well as
install the laptop toolset and spin down the system drive completely
for less noise.
Good luck with however you go.
