No! I can't believe that one reads "requremets" into the Microsoft Watch article. She described what she thought would be a typical PC running Longhorn. She spoke nothing about requirements!
And in two years I actually expect myself to be upgading my current 2x2 G5 with a Mac having dual core PowerPC-processors @ 4 GHz or more, 1 TB storage and 2 GB RAM. Will that be the requirements of Mac OS X 10.6? I really hope not.

The LacCie Big Disk is actually two 250 MB harddrives RAID:ed together. It's the same with Bigger Disk, but it uses four drives.
But who cares? In two years would anyone be surprised if there'd be single drives with 1 TB capacity? And.. Longhorn will be Microsoft's primary operating system until 2010. So by then what do you thing the average PC running Longhorn would look like? Dual core @ 6 GHz, 1 TB HB, 2 GB RAM, GPUs three times as powerful as today. I'd say that be a low end computer by 2010.
