Good luck to them. If they can bring down the cost of the Intel X series they'll make alot of people happy.

Buy some Palm stock, Dell may be buying them out ;-)

What is the best part is that we may see some mixed systems. It would be nice to see an hard disk with integrated ssd parner. I could offer good performance of sdd and capicity of traditional hd in same paccage. Ofcource I don't have any idea how well that kind of combination would work, but it would be interesting to see.
The sdd would be like somekind of buffer memory between the system and hd. Can anyone say if it sould be usefull solution?

EPIC announcement!

I am a WD fanboi, but even people who dislike the brand should see the benefits to come from this. It's a win/win/win for enthusiasts. The only down side to the tech world right now: when to start the new build? So many changes looming...

WD should definitely leverage its Raptor/Velociraptor brand name by creating a less expensive SSD line and a higher-performance line.

I don't get it. Why would I want to throw my money onto a sinking ship? Here's hoping anyway.
