Asus already has plans to release dual drive laptops so they can claim the 1TB mark.

For a while, I didn't think they'd get past the 120GB mark. I'm glad I was wrong. :D

is it still 5400 or 7200?

most likelly 5400, but remember that even at 5400, it can probably match 7200rpm drives from last year, because of much denser platers.

If laptops want to really compete with desktops as multifunctional PC systems, and not just workstation like web browsing machines, then the disk space is essential.
