WD 1TB Notebook Drive

Western Digital today reached a symbolic milestone in notebook storage today by launching two new Scorpio Blue notebook hard drives above the 500GB mark. The new versions reach 750GB and 1TB each by fitting just over 333GB per platter. While the drives are 12.5mm tall and therefore unlikely to fit most notebooks outside of desktop replacement models, the design both points to the future and is deemed particularly useful for external drives, where the extra space is more valuable.

Both capacities have anti-shock protection as well as quiet mechanisms. They connect to SATA and SATA II interfaces and should be available today at prices of $190 for the 750GB drive and $250 for the 1TB disk. No word has been given of 9.5mm drives suitable for thinner notebooks.
