The Gigabyte i-RAM, as reviewed by Hardware Zone, is a card that holds up to 4 gigs of RAM, and has a battery onboard, so data stored on the RAM will stay, even if it is moved from one computer to another, for about 16 hours.

16Mb cache and 500 Gb in size, the Hitachi Deskstar T7K500 Hard Drive reviewed by Xtreme Resources is one fast drive, that you'll take a while filling up.
