You never know, these savings might even be passed on to the consumer. Well, not in the UK obviously. That's not the way things are done. !

Love it, that is spot on, love the humour.

Thats why the 1TB Hitachi drives rival the Raptors, basically.

Yup, they get close to the Raptors in performance since they have great sequential read/writes (most of the HD's work). Raptors still win in random access though due to the rotational speed.
Once again...

Well, if we had a 15,000 RPM 1TB Hitachi.... .

Toshiba does not need to sell HD technology to Apple. They sell the actual hard drives to Apple. Besides, five years is a LOOOOOOOOONG time in the PC world. That's three generations of GPUs and two generations of CPUs there!

So the bigger the hard drive, the better the speeds, generally speaking? Neato!
