I'm just quoting Seagate's roadmap on the change in seek time. :) Not going to argue with them.

A couple years back a friend resurrected an ancient Amiga (1993 era) and ran the included disk performance tests. Seek times were less than twice that of the very latest modern laptop hard drive. You can read the numbers, but having the actual hardware there in front of me made it truly sink in.
