My WishList

As every normal male would, I have a few things that I wish I could have right now but just can’t afford it unless I win the Lotto in the next few days. Mainly it’s all elecrtical gadgets and stuff but hey who wouldn’t want the things that I have listed. I’m not being extravagant with my wishes I’m sure others would be able to afford it but for me it’s still a distant reality.

But here it is anyways just in case I forget or if I do win the Lotto then I can start crossing it off the list.

1.) Dell XPS 600 Renegade– Limited Edition

XPS Renegade By Dell

This is one hell of a gaming rig. This machine features 41 gigapixels per second of raw graphics performance, 5.2 teraflops of computer power, 96 pixel pipes, and an astounding 2 GB of on-board graphics memory.

A Quad-SLI PC lets you run your favorite games at an unbelievably high resolution of 2560×1600 while maintaining silky smooth frame rates. In addition, support for a new 32x antialiasing mode and 16x anisotropic filtering enables stunning visuals.

For Enthusiasts, by Enthusiasts

Gamers, case modders and other performance enthusiasts strive for the latest technologies and ideas to make their PCs and Macs go faster, look cooler and give them a competitive edge. The original enterprise-class WD Raptor, designed for harsh 24×7 server environments, blazed onto the scene in 2003 and was immediately embraced by performance enthusiasts, setting the ultimate standard in hard drive performance. Now, leave it to WD’s special-forces engineering team – enthusiasts in their own right – to design a drive exclusively for extreme enthusiasts.


Underground modders have attempted for years in their garages to customize their hard drives with clear tops to see the precision mechanical components reading and writing like mad while they power through the latest game or demanding application. However, tolerances are so tight and materials so technologically advanced inside the drive that even the slightest speck of dust or gaseous contaminants, or disruption of the delicate and balanced drive ecosystem, destroys the drive, not to mention all the data. Keep in mind that read/write heads at the end of the actuator arm, which flip-flops the polarity of the magnetic particles on the disk surface, literally flies over the 10,000 RPM surface at one two-thousandth the width of a human hair. Assembly must be conducted in a world-class cleanroom. And only a world-class group of mechanical, electrical, chemical and magnetic hard drive engineers can design a top and choose the right materials to ensure reliable performance in the most demanding conditions.


For two years in WD’s advanced development labs, located in California, this team of engineers painstakingly and scientifically analyzed the hundreds of considerations necessary to make a hard drive with a view, and ensuring the result was worthy of the WD Raptor nameplate magnified the task at hand.

* Transparent Lens: Finding a material that would withstand heat, pressure from 10,000 RPM turbulence and electrostatic discharge (ESD); provide a crystal-clear, unobstructed view of the disk and head assembly; and maintain high-volume manufacturability was a monumental challenge. WD finally settled on a special grade of crystalline polycarbonate and shaped the lens in a way that would maximize viewing area, structural rigidity and aesthetics. The team used laser Doppler vibrometers to determine optimal lens placement, while maintaining overall drive integrity. A unique ESD-dissipative coating, when used with the conductive frame, redirects an unwanted ESD charge out of harm’s way, protecting the read/write heads from potentially damaging zaps of static discharge. The lens is attached to the cover with a foam adhesive, chosen for its gap-filling and sealing capabilities.

* Conductive Frame: The laminated frame that surrounds the lens must have conductive properties to enable an ESD charge to move through it, using it as a bridge between the surfaces it spans. The coated window lens and the cover are tied electrically through strategically placed bare-metal surfaces on the cover, thus creating a conductive unit. Conductivity in the frame is achieved with injection of microscopic carbon nanotubes into the frame adhesive. All this ensures that a wandering ESD charge built from you shuffling your feet across the carpet doesn’t destroy the critical data, content and software you rely on WD Raptor X to protect.


WD goes to great lengths to ensure that every one of the millions of drives it ships every month are of the highest quality and maintain the highest reliability. The WD Raptor X is no exception; an integral component to the research and development work is extensive testing in extreme environmental conditions.
