These are the new perpendicular platters right? Much lower access times is believable then.

Can you imagine a 10k drive with perpendicular (see the 15k perpendicular article)?

Why does Perpendicular recording mean lower access times for you? For me it means higher data density and thus higher transfer speed. Access times are influenced by other factors - afaik.
