I'm using ext3 on my toshiba, no fsck's for almost a year, and with several
power failures during heavy FS usage. For now its working great, the only
problem that I can't resolve is the commit interval. the HD spins down
after some time to save battery power but spins right back because of the
journal update or something , anyway it didn't happen with ext2 only.

In the long run I think its better to use a journal FS than to cry over
your lost files.
