Toshiba opens curtains, reveals air-cushioned 5-terabyte terror

Anybody interested in a fully tested and reliable HDD?

Is Chrome somehow special?

How come this isn't a problem on Firefox or Opera? Or is it?

Swap-to-memory

Just another swap implementation, instead of swapping to disk (i.e. going through the disk subsystem) it swaps directly to another memory subsystem.

Faster than normal swap-to-disk? Any benchmarks?

Nice marketing blurp though.
