Computing News | Toshiba to Deliver 200GB Laptop Drive
Toshiba has announced a new 2.5-inch hard drive for notebook computers that boasts 200GB of storage space on only two disk platters thanks to new perpendicular recording technology. The company expects to begin mass producing the Serial ATA drive, which spins at 4,200 RPM, in August.
Perpendicular recording stands data bits on their end, enabling more storage density on each hard drive platter. The technology has already been employed by a number of different manufacturers, including Seagate and Hitachi. Toshiba says the drives will help the industry's push for thinner and lighter laptop computers.
