If you have lots of massive programs that have all sorts of large extensions you need loading quickly... you would need how much? 160, 320 GB? The rest of the space isn't going to be used as much as you might as well put the rest of your data on a seperate standard disk drive, I think.

Although it's fun to daydream about.

well, the better things about the colossus (imo) are-move to desktop drive size (no need to get an adapter, or to find somewhere to velcro/ziptie/what have you-LARGE size (yes i understand the whole thing of, put the apps on the one drive, then use a standard drive for everything else, but at the same time the increased size is just mostly hinting towards the evolution of drives...maybe it might force price drops for other drives (hah, I wish but maybe) and eventually ssds might get a reasonable $/GB ratio

Just wait a year or 2 and this will be down to less than a dollar per GB.
