USB 3 & eSata for Externals

Sticky K 9:25 AM - 11 May, 2010
I'm in the process of getting a new notebook and the model I'm getting has an eSata port. I imagine this is going to be cool to use for my externals & SSL.

I have not yet seen a notebook with USB 3 yet but the new higher end desktop motherboards are shipping with it.

Anyone rocking eSata yet?

i had an esata external hd 3 years ago. don't like the fact you need a separate power supply for them.
