Seagate 7mm drive to top out at 250GB?

Seagate Momentus Thin to have reduced capacity

Seagate's promised 7mm notebook hard drive will be relatively limited in capacity if leaked details prove accurate. To be called the Momentus Thin, the line will purportedly top out at 250GB and have just one step down, a 160GB model, for those concerned about cost. The disks should nonetheless still spin at the same 5,400RPM as typical notebook drives measuring 9.5mm or 12mm tall.

Both of the SATA II-capable drives are said by CrunchGear to be geting their unveiling at CES in early January, though it's not yet evident whether the drives will be available immediately or ship later.

Officially, Seagate has so far only said that the 7mm drives will be targeted at extra-thin notebooks that would previously have had to turn either to even smaller but low capacity drives or else much more expensive solid-state drives.
