faster hard drives (finally!)

For the last few years I've come to realize that the biggest performance bottleneck on my computers is the hard drive. It's been frustrating to watch the speed of CPUs grow so fast, while hard drives remain as slow as ever. I'm relieved to see Western Digital finally starting to offer some serious performance (10,000 RPM, SATA, 8MB buffer) with the new Raptor drive.
