Amazing machine but NO USB 3.0?? Is it too early for that?

Possibly for a main stream computer it is too early for Usb 3.0. I know most motherboards don't even have it yet."BIG" MISS TOASTER: Antec Mini P180 White // AOC LED 23" 1920 x 1080// AMD Athlon II X2 (240) 2.8GHz Socket AM3 65W // Gigabyte 780GM-S2HP mATX // 2x2GB DDR2 800 Transend // 500 WD Caviar 7K RPM 16MB // XFX Radeon HD 5750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 // LITE ON Dvd-Writer // PCP&C Silencer 500W 80+

Well, the big reason USB3.0 is taking forever is that Intel is purposely dragging their feet in adding the new standard to their chipsets. They want to push their own competing tech. As a result, for motherboard manufacturers to add it, they need to use third-party chips on the boards; so far we've mostly seen NEC's being used. Once Intel adds it natively we'll see a lot more of it; until then, its kinda hit and miss.Nam et ipsa scientia potestas est.
