My System Specs

Default New Seagate 1.5TB drive

Just noticed that Seagate is going to be putting out a 1.5TB drive in August.

You can see it on engadget, here

From the article
Quote:
The jump from 1TB to 1.5TB is the " largest capacity hard drive jump in the more than half-century history of hard drives," according to Seagate
On a side note I quickly figured out that with a drive of that size you lose about 100GB when going from the base10 that the drive manufacturers state use to the base2 that the OS uses. I mean really can't the drive manufacturers just start using base2, I know the flash manufacturers do.
