I followed the link ( http://ladd.dyndns.org/xbench/merge.xhtml?doc2=90960)
regarding the HD in the new ³Mini².

Here¹s what I found:

> Providing capacious storage in a slim form factor, Toshiba MK8025GAS 80GB
> 2.5-inch hard disk drive is an ideal solution for mobile computing and
> consumer electronics. With an a real density of 64.8 gigabits per square
> inch and a super slim package measuring 9.5mm high, Toshiba's MK8025GAS hard
> disk drive accommodates the storage needs of multi-functional mobile PCs and
> other applications, such as telecommunications products, printers, copiers,
> GPS systems and MP3 players.
> Features:

    * 80GB capacity
    * Rotational speed of 4,200rpm
    * 12ms Average Seek Time
    * 8MB Buffer
    * 9.5mm High
    * 2.5" sized drive
    * ATA-6 Interface
    * Fluid Dynamic Bearing (FDB) motor drive
    * 100MB/sec Transfer Rate
    * 300,000 MTTF Hours
    * One year manufacturer warranty

While all this is fine, the 4200 RPM rotational speed is going to make the
³Mini² feel more like a slower G4.  Note that this IS a sub $500 computer.
Not a bad thing ... Just remember the market segment this is designed for.

Just my 2 Cents worth ...
