I too would like to see a 2.5" hybrid drive with 16 or more GB of flash and the ability for the cache to fully cache writes, not just reads, so updates and installs go @SSD speed too. Though I guess it is unlikely to be out until Seagate comes out with a 3 platter drive, or more GB/platter so they can up it to 1.5 or 2TB of capacity. Who knows how much longer we'll have to wait.

Last I checked the WD Black2 had no support for OS X.

This is correct, PC only. Get a big SSD instead.

I'd love either drive. I do wish the SSHD had more than 8GB of caching flash though. 32-64GBs would be great.
