These three big guns are working on tiny chips.
Slowly but surely, hard drives with 4 KB sectors are replacing the "legacy" 512 byte sector size. By January 2011, all drive vendors will have made this transition. Buyers of new PCs are safe, but there are still a few performance pitfalls to note.
There is more than one way to skin a cat. Several hard drive vendors have created transitional products to simplify the transition from 3.5" disks to more compact 2.5" devices in SMB-class servers. We cover three different options you can use.
Toshiba has recalled 41,000 laptops sold between August 2009 and August 2010 because the units in question represent a burn hazard to users.
The latest 2.5” hard drive generation ships with SAS 6Gb/s and delivers up to 600 GB of storage space, narrowing the gap with much larger 3.5" disks. Today we're comparing the latest 2.5" drives from Seagate and Toshiba to see if they're faster, too.

Remember when 500GB was the most you could get from a notebook drive? It seems like most vendors have made the transition to 640GB. Western Digital even has its own 750GB model that fits within the 9.5 mm z-height. So, which of these drives is the best?
Toshiba is launching a limited edition, dual-screen concept PC in celebration of its 25-year anniversary in the notebook market.
SSDs are best for performance. SATA hard drives provide maximum capacity. Enterprise-class SAS disks are the workhorses positioned between them. But which enterprise hard drive capacity makes sense when there are several from which to choose?
Toshiba gave its Satellite line a bit of a makeover today and while the finer details of the refresh may have been lost in the whirlwind of E3 news, one model made a big splash: the A665.
