I Terabyte, but to you 943 gigs...

Just wondering who's going to be the first on my friends list to install 1 terabyte hard disks as spotted by ludditerobot - on this side of the pond my money is on someone in the Plokta cabal and/or autopope, not sure about the US contingent. Bit disappointing that the capacity is "only" 943 gigs after formatting, but doubtless there are bigger things to come. Astonishing that they can get this into a 3.5" form factor - my first hard disk was "full size" 5.25" and 10mb inside an externl casing (there wasn't room inside an IBM PC for the disk drive and the power supply was inadequate anyway), the first one I saw was an 8" externally cased 5 mb drive for a TRS-80 model 3.
