Fujitsu MHZ2 BJ Drive

Fujitsu is claiming a performance advantage today by introducing the largest-capacity fast notebook drive yet available. The MHZ2 BJ series holds the same 320GB as all but the most capacious 2.5-inch hard drives but spins at 7,200RPM versus the normal 5,400RPM. Combined with 16MB of cache, the extra speed reportedly provides a more desktop-like level of performance without the sacrifice in capacity dictated in the past.

The faster-spinning drive reportedly does not come at the expense of added power, and the disk consumes roughly the same 2.3 watts of active power as other drives. All versions of the MHZ2 BJ begin shipping in late June and should be available worldwide at a price to be set later. Most drives are to be sold to notebook manufacturers, including Fujitsu itself.
