The USB 3.0 specification, a next-generation high-speed connection standard due in 2009, is significant because all future PCs and devices will use connectors based on it. The spec is also expected to offer 10 times the speed of USB 2.0--used in virtually all PCs introduced in the last few years--or roughly 5 gigabits per second.

According to the comments there that's 5 Gigabits = 625 Megabytes (8 bits per byte). Not bad. I'm not sure I'd put off hardware purchases because of it. It'll probably be a while before it hits the laptops.

Maybe this'll make ReadyBoost a viable function of Vista.

True but it could well do when combined with the global credit crunch. Unless a new laptop is urgently needed now, and considering many give laptops a 4/5 year life span then it could be worth holding out for.

I am planning on getting a new laptop, but USB 3.0 combined with improvements in SSHD technology means I will be holding out as long as possible.
