I'd love a very water resistant phone. Just the other day I took a step backward trying to see better onto my roof and nearly fell into the pool, fully clothed, phone in pocket. Did the whole whirly-arms thing which saved me. So yeah, if the expensive computer in my pocket were waterproof, that'd be great.

OTOH, given SSDs and the inability to guarantee the erasure of all data on the drive, unencrypted data should never hit the drives at all, and the key should of course also never be stored on the same media (unencrypted).

That said, only my newer systems use encrypted volumes. My old drives I take apart and shatter/melt the platters.

If it's like my older one, very little time/energy. Unscrew about 8 screws, pop some clips and replace (RAM/disk) away.

I've got 8GB/1TB-SSD in my 2010 17" MBP, but it won't do Airplay due to the no H264 encoding in the GPU, and 8GB is the max it'll go on RAM.

I'm hoping the new MBP will do 32GB and the Xeons you can get in a Dell look interesting...
