I CAN IGNORE PERFORMANCE FIGURES FOR ATLEAST TWO MORE YEARS

by apocolypse2000_99 / January 24, 2006 1:59 PM PST

As previous persons have said these performance figures are just bragging rights. Only in benchmarks you see big differences that aren't realised or fathomed by people in everyday tasks.

I will line up my wallet when common hard drives can transfer 12-150GB(Gigabytes, not gigabits persecond)

A cheap hard drive starts at 15 terabytes or even an exabyte Happy

Home Broadband transfers are the speed of a common ata 133 hard drive or even faster

and the new dell XPS 600 Renegade becomes a stand to put my feet on when watching a 50inch plasma i spent $1000 for.
