Seagate Momentus 7200.2
Seagate today revealed the Momentus 7200.2, a new line of high-speed notebook drives. The drive producer joins Fujitsu in being one of the first companies to release a portable hard disk that combines high speed with storage. The updated Momentus continues to spin at the full 7200RPM speed but stores 160GB, making it an ideal fit for desktop replacements.
Importantly, the company adds, the drive also has anti-shock protection that can withstand as much as a 900 G impact when idle. The drive ships today to system builders and should become an option through those companies soon afterwards.
