Initially, it will be expensive but since it probably is a 10K RPM drive, the price will probably come down pretty quick and rest just above the other 10K drives they offer.

Yeah, that does make sense. 2 x 10k RPM platers stripped between the platters which theoretically means it handles data at the speed of a 20k RPM even though it isn't. That makes sense--but dirty.

Well that is what I head from somewhere ;)
Two drives in RAID 0 something like hardware Raid 0.

The official term for it is platter striping. In order to get around the patent, they are probably implementing it in a slightly different way than listed here:

Or, they might have obtained a license to the patent. There's also a LOT of patent cross-licensing done in the computer hardware and software industries. Cross-licensing allows companies to use each others' patent(s) for no cost...like "We'll let you use our patents A, B, and C, if you let us use your patents X, Y, and Z....that sort of thing.
