don't put 6 Gig SATA drives in your HP PC's

If you are a professional user, and own the xw or Z series HP computers (which is all that I recommend), you CANNOT install the new, super fast 6 Gig SATA drives into your HP workstations.

What does this mean to you - it means that if you want to use 6 Gig drives, you will be buying an ATTO or Areca host adaptor.
