My System Specs

Default

While we are on the subject...

Western Digital released a "Caviar Black" edition of the 640GB drive.

The model is WD6401. It has the 32MB cache versus 16MB, dual processors (whatever that means) and 5 year warranty instead of 3.

DirectCanada currently has the lowest price for it - $90.

640GB CAVIAR SATA 7200RPM 3.5IN BLACK - DirectCanada

I have not been able to find any reviews or benchmarks of this HD. I wonder how the "Black" treatment improves over the already excellent WD6400 design...
