The company has also announced a new three-platter, 12.5mm-high notebook hard drive series. The MKxx59GSM range has 750GB and 1TB models, and apart from the slight variation in form factor, they feature the same general specifications: 12ms seek time, 8MB buffer, 3Gb/s SATA, and 5400RPM spindle speed. All of the drives have an acoustics rating of 25dB, and are as quiet during operation as they are at idle.
We haven't heard a peep on pricing, but the MKxx59GSM line should launch sometime in the second quarter, while the MK7559GSXP is expected to arrive in the third.
