1TB SSD a steal at just over $US3,000

OCZ Technology's new Colossus Series of solid-state drives includes a pricey 1TB option.

If you had over $US3,000 to spare, what would you do with it? Component vendor OCZ Technology hopes that you'll spend it on one of its new, massive 1TB Colossus Series SSDs.

The 3.5-inch drives, which come in a sleek lightweight aluminum design, were originally expected earlier this year, but were delayed for undisclosed reasons--until now. OCZ's Colossus Series SSDs are available in a variety of capacities, starting with a $US550 120GB model. Colossus Series drives are also available in 250GB and 500GB capacities, with the top-end model offering 1TB of storage.

The 1TB Colossus drive is the first solid-state drive (SSD) to pack in such a high capacity. However, the luxury of speed and space comes at an extreme price, with the high-end model costing a massive $US3,300. That said, despite the immense price tag, PC Perspective deems the SSD a worthy contender, commending its impressive read and write speeds.

You can check out the Colossus Series' full specs on OCZ's official site.

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
