Fujitsu continues to push the limits of moble storage, announcing Monday 250GB and 300GB 2.5-inch laptop hard drives that utilize perpendicular magnetic recording technology. The Serial ATA drives spin at 4200RPM and have low power consumption, while improving shock tolerance.
The MHX2300BT series represents Fujitsu's second generation drives with perpendicular recording, and promises near-silent operation. "Our commitment to R&D has not only spurred the development of the industry's first 2.5-inch 300GB capacity perpendicular hard disk drive, but it will allow Fujitsu to continue to achieve these aggressive milestones in advance of the rest of the industry," remarked Fujitsu vice president Joel Hagberg. Both drives are slated to ship in the first quarter of 2007.
