[citation][nom]techguy378[/nom]Too bad there's not a way to plug it into an eSATA port. This type of port will be a lot more common than ultra high speed USB for a very long time to come.[/citation]
How about USB/eSATA hybrid ports? They seem to be common.
I like it, but it will likely be expensive as hell. Quite large too. It's 3.7" long and 1.3" wide, while you can grab a 1.8" 80GB Intel x18-m for under $200.
esata is strictly storage, USB 3.0 is a move up for the universal "serial" bus, meaning not only storage devices, but printer scanners, cameras, video, pre/post digial processing etc. think outside of just the "storage" box
