    It will be interesting to see if this catches on in the NAS and mini-ITX markets.

    My laptop came with 640GB 7200rpm which is pretty much enough for a Laptop (even tho it is my only rig).

    Does SATA6 really matter for HDD's?

    It really doesn't, an interface that'll go beyond 375MB/s on a drive that'll hit 80MB/s if you're lucky... whoop de doo.

    I've got 1tb in my laptop (2x 500gb) and that's pretty excessive. It's nice to have that much storage but to be honest all my movies etc go onto a network drive - not the laptop. All i keep on there are games and music. Still, I'm definitely not against this in any way.

    That'll be nice. For bragging rights, more than anything. That said, I do find the 320 I've got in my lappy to be a touch restrictive.

    ya I bought a 750gb Seagate and its extra height although minimal still meant I couldnt fit it into my netbook >< so this guy probably wont fit in most laptops/netbooks either...

    which netbook do you have, I tried installing my 750gb in my ASUS 1000HE and it didnt fit and in my ASUS 12.1 ION and same story so save your money, the largest you can fit is what Im using right now and thats a 500gb, maybe a 640 might fit if its only using two platters but the moment it goes to three platters its a no go.

    i thought that statement was pointless as well Sata6 makes marginal difference to none at all with HDDs, only applicable to SSD what can use it again 250MB/s is very fast any way and its not that its the speed it can do 4k random access speeds you should be looking at when getting an SSD but even an older SSD like samsung P128 with updated firmware (TRIM support) wipes the floor with HDDs and responds a lot faster

    MMmm toasted platters. 1TB of data to loose when you've had your laptop on your lap for too long! Having no current backup of all that is going to hurt when that dies!
