in my honest opinion. all HHDs should run at 4200rpm and have hybrid so they dont make heat. mechanical harddrives come with firmware chips and a board anyway. wish the harddrive manufactures would jump on the hyrbrid technology instead of seeing SSD as threat or whatever the heck it is that they havent done this in the first place.

EXACTLY! thats like saying we should ditch computer ram because SSDs exist. ditching mechanical harddisks is like ditching Discs because they are slow.

Hope that prices of standard HDD wil go down after the disaster in Thailand !!

Hey.That_Dude

This is mildly interesting. When they have a hybrid that can push the OS onto a 64 GB SSD with at least 500 GB of Hard drive space, I'll be interested.
Oh wait... that's like asking for 2 drive! (hell if i don't get to have an optical drive then at least give me two drives)

Question: how much does it cost Intel to fabricate their most popular Sandy Bridge chips each? Anyone know?

Nobody who knows will say. It's pretty low, but they spend an enormous amount of money on R&D as well as outrageous fabrication plants.
