MCE 160GB laptop drive

MCE Technologies has added a 160GB Serial-ATA hard drive with a fast 5400 RPM rotational speed to its MobileStor-S lineup of hard drive upgrades for the MacBook Pro, MacBook, and Mac mini. The MCE MobileStor-S 160GB/5400RPM drive is the highest-performance, highest-capacity drive available for Apple's MacBook Pro and includes an 8MB cache buffer, according to the company. It achieves its high capacity by utilizing second-generation "Perpendicular Recording" technology: data bits are stood on end within the disks' platters allowing more bits to be packed into the platter for increased hard drive capacity. The MCE MobileStor-S 160GB hard drive has sustained data transfer rates of up to 67.5MB per second with burst transfer rates of up to 150MB per second, according to the company. The drive is available now for $300.
