USB 3.0 is the next big thing in data transfer technology right now and computer manufacturers are stepping over each other to deliver machines with built in USB 3.0 technology.

HP has apparently won the  race and managed to sell the first laptops with implemented USB 3.0 technology. The HP Envy 15 (if you opt for the ATI 5830 graphics and  quad-core i7 processor version) and the Elitebooks 8540p and 8540w have built in USB 3.0 and allow data transfers 10 times faster than before (provided you connect to another USB 3.0 device).

USB 3.0 is backwards compatible, so you’ll be able to connect to older equipment, only it won’t works as well.
