Post hybrid drive - 05-19-2011, 09:40 PM

I just thought i would start a thread about Hybrid drives and my review of Segate's
This is the Drive Seagate Momentus XT 500GB review | Expert Reviews
I am very happy with it and it has transformed my dell. I love how the Hard Drive recognizes what you use most and puts it in the flash part of the disk. my boot up time has increased dramatically, I would say that its a great half way house between a SSd and a Hard drive so those are my thoughts. Just wondered if anyone else has tried this HDD or a similar type of drive.
Im so thrilled with the drive if they bring out a 1TB version thats going in my imac for sure.
the only other thing my dell needs is a 6 cell battery but im unsure of what and where i should buy from other than dell.

Dell Mini 10v/ 500GB seagate Momentus XT solid state Hybrid Drive/ 1Gb RAM/ Snow Leopard 10.6.7/ running Adobe Photoshop CS5 flawlessly for a netbook/ 6cell battery/ HAWT

I read this and thought it was not bad at all.

do you have seven in dual boot by any chance?
I would have been happy to know about your boot times for that OS and the lauch time for a few common programs
