    Considering its only talking about 2.5" drives, it makes perfect sense.

    Well after my last Seagate drive failure they left a bad impression on me, but generally maybe im a stick in the mud, I am hoping that Western Digital doesnt follow this trend I like the middle ground between Performance and Price.

    SSD's per GB is not at the level I like as of yet and 5400RPM drives are slow as hell for anything but storage :/ hence why I like the 7200RPM Laptop ones there a decent bit faster than the 5400's but not raping your wallet if you want a decent size.

    Then again like I say maybe im just being a stick in the mud, I know that SSD's compaired to 7200RPM hdd's is night and day I think its my cheap ass "best value for my money" side talking more than anything and every time that side of me starts talking it mentions...

    Hybrid drives. 'Nuff said. Most people don't need a large SSD section, but do need a large amount of space. That's where hybrid drives come into play. At least for now, since the SSD prices ($$ per GB) are falling year on year by 10s of percents.

    I don't use Seagate much anyway, I'm a WD guy. I guess its just a sign, things are changing.

    I was actually thinking today that I hope companies don't start to phase out desktops. I would be lost.
