Laptop’s Thinnest Hard Drive Yet!

The race to build smaller, more efficient and less power consuming products has been taking off this year, with the popularity rising in those little tiny laptops, otherwise known as netbooks.

Tomorrow, Seagate Technologies (www.seagate.com) an industry leader in 1″, 2.5″, and 3.5″ hard drives, both internally and externally, releases what will be known as the world’s thinnest laptop hard disk drive.  Checking in at an impressively small 7 millimeters in height, they are about 25% smaller than their traditional sister drive at 9.5 millimeters.  Seagate says, “The small drive will enable a new breed of entry-level thin laptops.”
