I don’t know about you but I’d like a 6.8GHz machine with 1TB or RAM and 2TB or storage.

Or even just to buy one of the 2TB compact flash cards.

I guess we’ll have to wait for the CES show in Las Vegas next January to see if it’s legit…

  1. I don’t believe a word of it, not a word. Let’s not forget, 1 TB is 1024 GB – one thousand and twent four gigabytes. That’s one million megabytes. Oh, and let’s just casually double that storage.

    And what’s with a 6.8GHz CPU. Did IQ’s just drop while I was away? Ma’am I already said it wasn’t indigenous, it was a derelict spacecraft, we homed in on it’s beacon. Woops, went in Aliens quote mode then, sorry.

    The figures just look to overblown to be realistic. But, I’ll be pleased to be proven wrong.

    I agree it looks like a HUGE jump…

    Having said that, here is a review of an Hitachi 500GB Drive that shows that we are moving towards the TB storage range.

    I hope it’s true, imagine the splash it would make..
