    I could see these being beneficial in SSD/App, HD/Data type setups where the SSD is the boot/app drive with the HD as the data drive.

    Exactly. SSD for OS and apps, this drive (or a 1.5TB 12.5mm drive when it comes out) for storage of large, defragmented files.

    Meh ... but by the time a 1.5TB 12.5mm drive comes out, a 1000GB 7200RPM 9.5mm drive will be around ... decisions decisions.
