A 1 TB HDD for your laptop!

Toshiba has introduced highest density 1TB 2.5-inch hard drive for portable and form factor mobile computers. Ideally, the new high density HDDs are meant for consumers who fall short of storage space for their laptops. The 12.5 millimeter thick 2.5-inch MK1059GSM HDD model has three platters offering 750GB and 1 TB storage space. The sample shipments will start from next month.

The drive’s spindle speed is 5400RPM, buffer memory is 8MB, seek time is 12 millisecond, energy consumption is 2.2W in seek mode and 1.7W in r/w mode and has a SATA 2.6 3Gb/s interface. It also boasts to have Toshiba’s ‘Silent Seek’ technology that makes every data seek operation quieter just like an idle drive.

There is no word on pricing as yet.
