    Very nice looking drive! And I'm partial to Seagate too (since their drives don't often die on me!)

    That's probably the drive I'll use next time a buy a laptop and strip the lousy stock drive out of it.

    Oh I know, I started drooling when I read about it.

    exactly. hasnt this been posted yet? maybe i just read it elsewhere.

    but thats what i think of. we have 500gb drives now, implement this perpendicular stuff and no reason we cant finally have that one terabyte. then i think of the day those drive only run $50. and we sarcasticly say, what can you do with a terabyte drive? and we throw it out, snickering how drives actually used to be rated in gigabytes haha.

    How about when HDs where in Megabites?

    I still have a few 250mb and smaller Hard drives around.

    I wonder how much faster these are than conventional (legacy?) storage. The extra density has to help access speeds, right?

    You would think it would, but I haven't seen any reviews on it yet.
