Blogging Lenovo employees say hybrid HDD are a bust, for now:
The Lenovo bloggers recommend that users skip first generation ReadyDrive hardware altogether and simply purchase more memory or buy a faster traditional HDD for the time being. The bloggers also suggest waiting for second generation ReadyDrive devices before making the hybrid leap.

This news comes on the same day that the Hybrid Storage Alliance was formed by Fujitsu, Hitachi, Samsung, Seagate and Toshiba. The five companies are working together to tout the benefits of hybrid HDDs and expect for them to account for 35% of the total HDD market by 2010.
