    Starting today, Dell and Alienware customers purchasing select XPS, Aurora and Area 51 gaming desktop computers can super-size their storage space by adding the world’s first consumer one terabyte (TB) hard drive from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies.

    The extra hard drive capacity provides enough space to store an incredible amount of data – a million photos, 16 days of DVD quality video or even a million minutes of music.

    Oh great I'v just got my friends trained in tec. speak ," Peat my memory is full " , you mean hard drive don't you ? Now its terabyte not Gb .

    Damn, that case is hot.

    I would feel like total geek with it sitting in my office though.

    Probably. I know they went on sale a while back, but I haven't seen them combined or offered with any of the major manufacturers.

    Its not something I would worry about when buying a new computer ,as always thought the mobo and cpu were more important . Still shake my head at the options we now enjoy tho .

    I wonder though how long it'll take to defrag the whole thing.

    Not a problem with the newer Defag programs ,I swear their faster the more space you have .

    The defag was a cheek after me mom-inlaw . Any old hardware guy would love her questions , how long . how fast . how many times ? Kinda sexual no ?

    I think it depends on your computer too doesnt it.

    If you got a more powerful CPU I'd think the program would run a lot faster.. quad core?
