Fujitsu breaks laptop speed, storage records

Fujitsu announced today that it has broken speed and storage records for a laptop drive with its new MHW2 BJ HDD. Using perpendicular magnetic recording, the company has managed to cram 160GB of storage into a 7,200 rpm, 2.5″ drive. I must say, that’s one fast, capacious laptop drive. The drive uses a 3.0 Gb/s serial ATA interface and perhaps most excitingly, only uses a maximum of 2.3 watts of power–helping you stream Lawrence of Arabia in its entirety from your hard drive without recharging. The drive will ship to OEMs in May and should start appearing in high-end portables this summer.
