    Hey y'all, you're pretty knowledgeable as a group --

    About 18 months ago I heard about a technology called Hybrid Hard Drive which was essentially a disk system where there was a small flash partition attached to a regular drive. Supposedly Vista was going to support it and it would auto-optimize to put the OS on the flash partition for super-fast boots.

    I'm guessing that technology never happened, because it's hard to find anything on Goole about it. Anyone have any insight?

    I did a Google Search for ReadyDrive and sure everyone talks about it, but where are the drives? What computers are they in? Most of the data is a year old.

    ahh, that's what you're looking for. sorry, I misunderstood.

    It looks like mostly laptops have them. here's news about two

    I guess they're really expensive, so that's why there's not a whole lot of enthusiasm for them right now. In the meantime, enjoy some propoganda

    Well, I guess my new Desktop PC is going to have to settle for the fastest SATA2 drives I can put into it. Oh well.
