Actually, helium in the long term is a big issue since supplies replenish slowly and annual consumption greatly outstrip supply.

It's just HDDs are not going to be a huge consumers of it.

Those are two different points.

So how does the helium stay in the hDD? I though all HDD's had to be open to the atmosphere so that pressure can be equalized, thats why all HDD's have that small side hole with a filter on it.

They sealed it, they even use them in submerged liquid cooled designs. Check this out:

If HE became really scarce and/or price prohibitive, then you could goto N, NE, or AR, but since they have a heavier atomic weight it might negate the drag advantages of HE.
