"Just when you got used to hard drives with hundreds of gigabytes (hundreds of billions of bytes) they do it: make one with a terabyte (a trillion bytes)."
I did read it down to the last word. Still it sounded "fishy". My laughably critical senses do not know what to do with the "they do it" part. It seemed misplaced. I kept thinking that you might just substitute it for a simple "they" instead. Like this:
"(... billions of bytes) they make one...)"
Anyway I hope everyone will have an HD like these.
