The reason WD changed from 3.5 to 2.5 with the intro of the VRaptor was indeed the 10k rpm speed. And that "unusable space in the centre" is what is throwing your numbers off (not going to even touch on the math skillz you "used" ;) ). Thats why the itty bitty 1.8" hdds lag even further behind in size per platter than the 3.5". IMHO I wish 5.25" HDDs had stayed popular before these new fangled 3.5"s came onto the scene. I want my 4TB hdd NOW dang nab it :)~
