An innovative idea. I could have predicted the benefits of lower air resistance - but I was surprised to learn that helium is a better heat conductor than air. A nice added benefit. I hope that data recovery will still be possible on damaged disk drives. Will vendors have to supply their own helium atmosphere for data recovery?

No, but the design team has unusually high pitched voices ;-)

Helium filled disk drives? Amazing...would they fly out of the door if pumped too much? ;-)
