It’s lovely that we share the world with 2.5-inch 1TB hard drives. I mean, the only thing that could be better is if said hard drives were thin enough to fit into most notebooks. Then it will be perfect but the gulf oil well apocalypse will probably get here first. Oh well, we’ll have to deal with drives like the 1TB Spinpoint MT2 and its 12.5mm height that’s 3mm higher than most notebook drives.
Besides the 1TB capacity, the drive itself isn’t anything all that special with a 5400 RPM rating and 8MB of buffer memory. It’s likely destined for external drive or nettop duty seeing as its a tad too fat to fit inside notebooks. No word on retail pricing, but that’s probably because OEMs and the like are the target demographic.
