Quantum releases specs of new HDD

I don't like this HDD. Between me and the readers, Watch out. IDE interface are being introduced with the same speeds as this drive, over 80GB storage and its cheap! The best bet is, don't buy one of these, wait four months for the IDE version to come out for £120!!! Trust me, they are coming. I am grabbing one as soon as it comes!!! Any more facts or info- e-mail me! It's suprising what I can tell you!Read below if you need the truth:IDE are taking over SCSI(SCSI is the past and we all know that, it will not be worth the worry. It is going to be crossed out by January next year, as example, just as quick as a 486 became the top dogs to five months later, the Pentium was introduced, where is a 486 now? second hand!)

Maybe i may sound a bit ignorant with this comment, but DAMN! 73.8 gig, i find that incredible, however, i also find the price incredible too. I could buy a decent gamin machine for that much, and possibly more. I think this step into the future is awsome, and 73 gig sure would be nice to have, however, i think i may wait a bit before i buy this cash hog, cause at around 1,500 dollars, that may be all i have the cash for

A bigger HDD can only mean one thing ! Be prepare for a BIGGER and LONGER Windows installation in the next version. It leaves your computer feeling slower and sluggish then ever before .That's unless your some rich prick with no d**k who can afford the state of the art computer
