The specs look impressive - I'll be curious to see the price. I know someone at seagate, so I'll have to ask them about it at some point.

Well it's about time.

Must be nice to be able to wait for a market to mature to $1 billion in annual sales before it is deemed worthy of your participation.

Now if they would just turn their attention and efforts to the PC market.
