Now that SandyBridge has revealed her deep dark secret you might be tempted to call the relationship off completely, but that would be a mistake.  Sure, she gets bored of old style storage quickly but with the bling of SATA 6 Gb/s drives can you really blame her?  Besides, she is one hot platform that you really ought to take a ride on.   Just look at how fast she satisfied The Tech Report when they took her out.  She took everything they threw at her with ease and style and was ready for more.
