WD Scorpio Blue 250GB 2.5-inch hard drive is still running great in my x360.

The 1tb version is 3mm thicker so it may not fit in all notebooks. I think it has 3 platters. 9.5mm vs. 12.5mm.

A 1trb version for a laptop? Seems like an awful lot for a portable device.

375 MB-per-platter areal density

[/sarcasm]Oh lord, imagine the platters needed...20 of them!

Really though, I'm interested. 320GB just doesn't cut it for me anymore.

Yes, the 1TB version is 12.5mm. How can we confirm? Well, about that last "did not release any shipment or pricing info" bit:

Tom('s), you're a bit behind here...

And just think: ten years prior to that ten year ago period the majority of households didn't even have computers, and just about all of them didn't have internet access. Isn't technology and progress great?

To be honest, I'd be more interested in 1.8" drives, as you can still get decent capacities, and would give a little more room for a bigger battery. =D

640Gb is enough for me atm. My next lappy upgrade will be an SSD, hopefully..

So is this a single platter 750GB drive?

Edit : Just realized that "375MBs areal density platter" was a typo. So we still have not hit 500 GB density's for laptop drives eh?
