Maybe Nissan/Infiniti will finally start using reasonably sized amounts of internal storage now! :ph34r:

Yeah, I mean a 7 series BMW still comes with something like a whopping 40GB hard drive, with 20GB taken up by GPS data!
The Chevy Volt is similar.

I understand the lower RPM for shock tolerance and the lower data density for less damage if the heads contact the platters, but the shock numbers aren't any better than a consumer class drive. It's just the temperature rating.

"It's just the temperature rating"
The amount of engineering going into making a mechanical HDD work and even start up at -30C and still work at +85C is simply astonishing. Lower data density is mainly due to thermal expansion effects.
Yet, I do not understand why automotive wouldn't go to flash based solutions.
