    I guess it is time for me to get a new hard drive.  5.9 is totally unacceptable!

    Exception: Invalid key. Still it could calculate my score and post to fb with no problems, just not to WEI Share.

    Does it matter what your computer is doing? Should you do a clean re-boot for example?

    A reboot wouldn't be a bad idea, though I'd just make sure you don't have a VM running or anything.

    I got 7.4 on everything *except* hard drive. If someone gets higher than 5.9, let me know Smiley

    I've done this twice and gotten the same score from no apps to some apps, but you may want to keep the # of your apps low, just in case Smiley

    Most drives show an index of 5.9. I have 2 WD VelociRaptors as a raid 0 and got  6.0 Wink To get any higher i guess you need SSD ...

    I'm using an HP Envy 15 with an Intel SSD and the SSD scores 7.6 while the machine itself scores 5.5. SSD's rock on Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2!!!

    I got 7.7 with an Intel X25-M, and it's the highest subscore of all Smiley

    What's the "touch points" column? Is it if you have some touch / multitouch hardware installed?

    My OCZ Vertex also get 7.7. Interestingly enough when I moved to 2 x and then 3 x in Raid-0 I still got a 7.7. I guess it is more about seek times and random IO and not sequential reads/writes.

    Just checked my desktop and I also got a 7.7 on that machine with the X25-M although another X25-M on my notebook computer scores 7.6, regardless these SSD's are insanely fast!!!

    That's correct, it shows you touch points on a given computer, which can change on a multitouch machine due to drivers. Working on a way to determine which touch driver was used. Keep in mind though that touch points can be a trackpad or a wacom tablet, so just because something has a touch point doesn't mean it's a multitouch machine.

    0+1 should be faster I'd imagine, just requires 4 drives Smiley
