interesting concept...

quote
Seagate is now sending out press notices of a "game changing" device that'll be revealed next week with Asus that can boost your system performance by up to 150 percent. Engadget was told that the product will be 20 percent quicker than a 600GB 10,000rpm SATA drive, 80 percent faster than a conventional 7200rpm HDD and able to boot "within six seconds of an SSD drive" and "learn about its user to dynamically decrease disk time, boot time, and application load time."

According to a German report from Computer Base, Seagate has paired 250 GB, 320 GB and 500 GB HDDs with 4 GB of SLC NAND flash. If this proves to be true, then frequently accessed files would be moved to the NAND area for ultra fast access while the larger files will be relegated to the magnetic storage area.

you just know that these things will be freaking expensive though. the cost per gig will probably be more than a proper SSD.
