Fujitsu 160GB 7200RPM HD

Fujitsu on Tuesday rolled out what it says is the highest-capacity, full speed notebook hard drive ever released. The MHW2160BJ spins at 7200 RPM despite holding 160GB of storage, eclipsing the 100GB limit on fast portable disks. The drive and its smaller 80GB and 120GB variants are also some of the first to ship with Serial ATA II support for burst transfers of up to 300MB per second. Power consumption is still low, however, with the drive peaking at 2.3 watts no matter how much demand is placed on the disk, according to the company.

All three capacities should be ready worldwide for notebooks and as stand-alone OEM drives by May; prices are unknown, but should vary by the individual system builder or dealer.
