Video: What if you RAIDed 24 solid-state hard drives together?

You can open every app in Office 2007 in under one second, and you can boot HD movies from the hard drive faster than from a DVD. It's insane, impractical, and self-serving, but I want one.

Pay attention: This is how you do viral marketing. Samsung is touting the speed and power of its new solid-state hard drives. To appeal to the tech-heads it expects to be early adopters, it created this video of a massively overpowered RAID system that uses 24 of these beauties strung together. The result? You can open every app in Office 2007 in under one second, and you can boot HD movies from the hard drive faster than from a DVD. It's insane, impractical, and self-serving, but I want one.
