300GB mobile hard drives coming from Fujitsu
Fujitsu may have been slow to catch up with Hitachi and Seagate with its first perpendicular notebook hard drives, but the company doesn't look content to lag behind the competition. In the first quarter of 2007, Fujitsu intends to ship what it says are the world's first 2.5" mobile hard drives with capacities of 250GB and 300GB. Such capacities aren't particularly impressive by desktop standards, of course, but 2.5" hard drives from both Fujitsu and its competitors currently top out at either 160GB or 200GB. The upcoming Fujitsu hard drives will be part of a new MHX2300BT series and will sport 4200RPM spindle speeds, Serial ATA interfaces with Native Command Queuing support, and 300G of operating shock tolerance.
