Laptop hard drive with 200GB storage space

By Derek Sooman on March 27, 2006, 3:02 PM
Laptop aficionados will be pleased to hear that storage space is taking another leap - this time to 200GB thanks to the brilliant work of Fujitsu. The company is to begin shipping a 200GB hard-disk drive for laptops in the third quarter of this year. The new model will have a Serial ATA interface, and is aimed mainly at entertainment and multimedia laptops, which require the additional space.

The 2.5-inch laptop PC hard-disk drive market was 81 million units in 2005 and is expected to grow past 150 million units in 2008 to 210 million drives in 2010, the company estimates. In the same period the desktop PC drive market, which has been a mainstay of Fujitsu's drive business, is expected to contract from 240 million units in 2005 to 190 million units in 2010.

What they released was a 5400RPM 160GB a few days ago I think. In the "related stories", there is a 160GB fujistu laptop HDD announced in August 05. It was 4200RPM tho.

Fujitsu is at it again?! Jeez! They just don't stop do they? If I got a laptop, it would have that power-hungry monster in it. Mmm.... gigabytes... @_@

They don't really need to increase storage anymore, just read and write times. Make them faster, not bigger.
