Today Hitachi unveiled their new high capacity 2.5 inch hard drives. From Hitachi’s press release:
On the eve of the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, at a time when most of the technology world is asking “what’s the next big thing?”, Hitachi Global Storage Technologies (Hitachi GST) has answered that question quite literally by introducing the world’s highest capacity 2.5-inch mobile hard drive. Setting a new industry benchmark for capacity, the half-terabyte (500GB) Travelstar 5K500 is poised to usher in a new era of “slim” desktops, full-featured notebooks, gaming consoles and other advanced applications for consumers on-the-go.
A 500GB laptop drive is definitely lustworthy. I’m running out of room on my 80GB drive right now.
