You are ill-informed, duke. SSDs (solid-state drives) are insensitive to magnetism but provide a less dynamic quality of sound to their magnetically-sensitive, rotating-drive cousins. That's one reason why there will likely long be third party vendors of external rotating drives now that laptop manufacturers like Apply have standardized on internal SSDs.
I was, as ever, being facetious in pointing out that hard-drive manufacturers probably do understand the effect of magnetism on their product because you can't make a hard drive without it.
To paraphrase F.E. Smith, a much-trolling duke is like an ill-tuned cymbol...
Not trolling, just poking fun at your choice of words. I understand your viewpoint. I don't agree but there is no point me disagreeing. I found the notion of an HDD without magnetic materials amusing as it wouldn't store any data. A bit like a brick :)

Which is not to be confused with a cymbal. Wymbourne wasn't trolling, he was joking.
Well, that's how I took it.
