This is a great writeup! Thanks for the details. It's a super cool idea, and something I've been wanting for a really long time. I've looked into the hybrid drives before, and just wasn't really satisfied. I'm glad to see Apple tackling the problem in their own way. I can't wait for it to come to the 21" iMac. In my dreams, I'd like it to be in the next retina MBP, but there's no way there'll ever be enough space.
Oh wow! This is amazing... terrific work!
John, have you ever seen an iOS or Mac app that also teaches chess? I'm imagining some kind of interactive feature to guide you through common setups and test scenarios... maybe I should just get a book!
I used AppFresh to check for updates. It's a great way to auto-update all non MAS apps all at once.

I'm currently on 4.3. Should I upgrade to 4.3.5 before upgrading to 5 or is it not necissary? Normally I'm behind the curve by at least a few months. This will be the first time I'm actually upgrading right away. So, thanks for the upgrade guide! You folks always have the most comprehensive one.
This bums me out. While I don't have any statistical data to back me up, I've always felt Hitachi drives failed less than WD drives did. Hard to imagine production staying exactly the same when the companies merge.
