Old stuff. DailyTech had that last week.

Very nice, but the price will probably be insane.

DailyTech is good. They have tons of great stuff.

Like this Intel Core Duo "Yonah" with a Sub-9W TDP. It hardly even uses 1W during normal usage.

Woah, 50,000GB. Instead of buying big hard drives, people will just buy a spare DVD drive, and use the discs for storage instead - 50TB, that is actually mad.

Who needs 50TB though..

You can use it as storage, but discs don't last as long as hard drives. Seriously...50TB is so big. I still have 8GB left on my 120GB and I have tons of movies and software.
