Toshiba MK8009GAH - 80 GB
The technical details of the 80 GB MK8009GAS are similar to those of the 40 GB MK4009GAL, as the two share the same product design - the 80 GB drive just has two platters instead of one. This increases the drive weight to 59 g, which means you get a 100% increase in capacity at a mere 25% increase in weight. As you can see in our benchmark results section, the 80 GB version runs at very much the same idle power (0.4 W), but the active power requirements go up by 23%, from 1.8 W to 2.2 W.
