    As impressive an engineering feat that is, I can't help but wonder how much it will affect power consumption.

    Yeah, it's still 5400rpm. Remember though that sequential read and write speeds will still be excellent - comparable to if not better than a 10000rpm 1TB drive. And for someone with a SSD primary drive, who'd be using this for mass storage... I really don't care what the random read times are.

    Data sheet for those of you who may be interested.

    well my only chance at an SSD is an express card SSD, also don't' those reads and writes go down once drive is mostly/almost full? my 1 Tb has like 125 free gb left.

    also is newegg or amazon selling it yet? (didn't see any thing on newegg yet)

    What for? Surely an SSD plus 2TB standard drive combo is better :)

    the Acer 5920G only has 1 HDD slot. specially if you want to keep the optical disc drive. the only solution i know of is an express card SSD and those are really pricey.
