Alienware is the first to offer notebooks based on Seagate's new 160GB Momentus 5400.3 HDD which uses perpendicular recording. While 160GB still isn't much, the storage capacity on the mobile front is slowly improving.
Alienware is featuring the new Seagate Momentus 5400.3 160GB mobile hard drive on Area-51 m7700, Area-51 m5500, and Sentia m3200 mobile systems. In addition, the Area-51 m7700 is available to be configured with dual Momentus 5400.3 160GB hard drives for a total capacity of 320GB, allowing customers to enjoy the largest hard drive capacity ever available on a mobile system.
Momentus 5400.3 is the world's first notebook disc drive family from Seagate built on perpendicular recording technology, delivering the highest areal density - 132 Gbits per square inch - to provide the highest levels of drive capacity, reliability and performance. With industry leading operational shock tolerance of 350 Gs, the 5400 RPM drive gives Alienware notebooks a more stable operating environment.
And with a 160GB hard drive, Alienware mobile users have the convenience of taking all their content with them wherever they go rather than being forced to adjust to the limitations of smaller hard drive capacities. Customers can save more of their digital videos and photos, recorded television programming, music, games, and more, as well as install more office and entertainment applications.
