Samsung readies 500GB notebook HDD

Posted on Wednesday, March 05 2008 @ 16:25:47 CET by


Samsung has released a new 500GB 2.5" HDD for notebooks - the Spinpoint M6.
The Spinpoint M6, a 2.5-inch hard drive, fits into the chassis of commercial and multimedia notebooks, said Andy Higginbotham, director of hard drive sales at Samsung Semiconductor. Two drives can be combined for 1TB of storage, he said.

The company was able to fit three 167GB platters in a small frame to achieve 500GB of storage in one drive, Higginbotham said. The hard drive spins at 5,400 RPM.

Priced at $299, the hard drive will ship to PC makers and retail stores later this month. A company spokeswoman declined to comment on which PC makers will be using the drive.

This is not the first attempt to put 1TB of storage in a laptop. At the Consumer Electronics Show earlier this year, Asus announced the M70S laptop, which combined two 500GB drives from Hitachi.
Also new is the Spinpoint MP2 2.5" hard drive, this unit has a capacity of up to 250GB but spins at 7200RPM for faster read and write speeds. The drive is priced at $299 and is aimed at desktop replacement notebooks, workstations and blade servers.
