230GB notebook HDD coming next year

Fujitsu announced it will ship a 2.5-inch 160GB HDD for notebooks in October.
Fujitsu claims that its 160GB drive has the highest storage capacity for a 5,400 rev/min disk, but Seagate and Hitachi have both launched drives with the same capacity. Seagate launched its perpendicular laptop drives in January, including a 2.5-inch 160GB product and followed up with 3.5-inch drives in April.

Toshiba even showed off a 200GB drive in June and launched smaller perpendicular drives in 2005. Hitachi also claimed it has used better chemicals in its 160GB drives and announced plans for a 230GB drive next year.
