Fujitsu readies 320GB notebook drive

Fujitsu 320GB Laptop Drive

Fujitsu today became one of the first notebook drive makers to break past the 300GB barrier and announced the MHZ2 BH series, a new line of 2.5-inch Serial ATA drives destined for notebooks. Like the recently announced Toshiba and Western Digital equivalents, the new range tops out at 320GB without sacrificing much speed, spinning at the same 5,400RPM as drives that were previously limited to 250GB of storage. This also occurs while minimizing power draw: the 320GB disk consumes 0.6 watts at idle and no more than 1.9 watts at peak, suiting it to very energy-sensitive computers or handhelds.

Several extra capacity levels are available starting at 40GB, all of which feature the same rotation speed and power savings as the largest version and have an average seek time of between 12ms and 14ms. Fujitsu does not list pricing for the drives, which will be available both pre-installed for notebooks and as a separate option sometime in early 2008.

    Wow, larger than most desktop drives in use... Can't wait. I wonder how long it would take for the 7200rpm drive of that size to come out.
