Fujitsu MHW2 BJ Series
Fujitsu takes 7200RPM notebook drives to 160GB

Fujitsu has unveiled the world's first 160GB 7200RPM SATA hard disk drive (HDD) for notebook computers. The new MHW2160BJ notebook HDD will be available for high-performance notebooks beginning in May of this year.

The 2.5" HDD features a SATA 3.0Gb/s interface and has best-in-class acoustic levels of 2.5 bels at idle. The drive also sips power and only consumes 2.3 watts or less when reading/writing data.

2.5" notebook HDDs currently max out at 200GB and are only available with a spindle speed 4200RPM. Likewise, 7200RPM hard drives until now have topped out at 100GB. Fujitsu's new 160GB 7200RPM HDD strikes a nice balance between both extremes. Pricing, which is sure to be extravagant, has not yet been announced.

What about price... what will price be like? It might not be worth getting it... 2x 100gigs might be at that point.

This is to fit into a regular laptop. It's pretty clear why that is not a feasible suggestion.

What I was more interested in, is whether this is a 9.5mm or 12.5mm drive as one of Fujitsu's 200Gb 2.5" hard disks were really cheap but also 12.5mm which made it incompatible with 95% of current laptops.
