This is a extremely important news because like I always says, performance is a multiple variables equation. It's not a matter of just having a good processor, you need a good graphic chip, you need memory and you need a fast HDD also. Today, all the HDD running in our UMPCs are running at 4200 RPM, and that makes all the HDD operations extremely slow. That's why this news posted at Engadget is to me one of the best news for the Small Factor PC community.
While others have hit the magical 160GB mark in an 8-mm thick form factor, this is the first 1.8-inch SATA to reach 5400RPM.
