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.

How about capacity

I'd rather see increased capacity than speed in 2.5" drives. What are they topped out at now, like 200GB?

They actually have a 300GB 12mm drive on their website as well.... Wouldn't want to think of what it costs. It's a 4200 rpm drive.
