Fujitsu Readies 250GB 2.5″ Notebook Drive

One upping the Hitachi drive posted about here, Fujitsu isn’t waiting around for others to step up to the notebook drive storage lead.

“While hybrid hard disk drives (HHDDs) and flash solid-state disks (SSDs) may be the next big thing in mobile storage, Fujitsu still has a few tricks up its sleeve when it comes to 2.5″ HDDs. In early March, the company announced the world’s first 2.5” 160GB HDD with a 7200RPM spindle speed.

The company today announced that it is developing its new MHY2 BH Series drives which will offer a storage capacity of up to 250GB in a 9.5mm-thin profile. The drive will have an idle acoustic noise level of 2.4 bels and power consumption of 1.9 watts when writing data. The company neglected to mention how fast the drives would spin.”
