G'day all

A month or so ago there was a fresh round of discussion on the relative merits
of the different flavours of hard disk storge. 

As usual, we're all looking for some Real World (TM) numbers. I doubt this
counts but I came across a prezo from Seagate and Microsoft (so it's obviously
in PowerPoint format):

Check out slide 21.

Probably not worth taking toooo seriously given it's from a HDD manufacturer who
one might suspect is more interested in selling more expensive product. Also not
a lot of details on the actual testing.

Anyhoo... more fuel for the next round ;)
