Hybrid drives are essentially here today.... and as they seem to be an additional front end interface to the HDD I would presume addaptors to convert standard IDE and SATA drives to Hybrid would be available (hopefully) with that being the case it MAY be as simple as adding a Hybrid drive adaptor to the HDD in my desktop and getting crazy additional performance and longer life..... something I for one would find much nicer than needing to purchase another drive and re-install....just my thoughts tho

the idea tho (didn't read the entire article just skimmed it) sounded pretty interesting
