Sign me up for Seagate’s new drive technology because I want it! The company has just patented a new twist on storage devices that may increase capacity tenfold. Seagate calls the new technology Heat-Assisted Magnetic Recording (HAMR) and it uses nanotube lubrication, allowing the drive head to be ultra-close to the platters. Seagate theorizes HAMR-disks with capacities like a "600GB 1.8-in. drive, a 1.46TB 2.5-in. drive, and 7.5TB Barracuda 3.5-in. drive."

    600GB hard drive in my Q1? Sign me up, I’m sold. (Unless it’s a heinous battery leech.)
