Engadget has news about VoodooPC’s plans to create a HTPC with whopping 8
Terabyte of storage space under it’s hood. Yes, it’s a HTPC we are talking
about, and not some large bulking data server: “When we heard that VoodooPC was
planning a media PC with 16 drive bays and a maximum capacity of 8 terabytes,
our first thought wasn’t, “what are we going to do with all that space?” No, it
was, “what, only 8TB?” After all, if you’ve got 16 bays, why not put a full TB
in each one, instead of a measly 500GB (which is the total capacity of Voodoo’s
current media PC, the Aria, pictured)? Especially if this is going to be a media
PC designed for HD? Regardless, Voodoo apparently plans to release the PC around
the same time Windows Vista hits the market, which means it’ll presumably come
with Vista Home Premium, the version that includes the media features currently
in Windows XP MCE. At this point, Voodoo says the box will come out later this
year, though, of course, Vista delays could slow that timeline. Which is fine
with us, since we’re going to need a little time to save the $ 8,000 this bad boy
is expected to cost.”
