It's about time we get desktop performance AND capacities in a 2.5" drive.

Sweet... I imagine it'll be a bit pricey but likely worth it if you're looking for performance and capacity.

Looks like it's almost time for me to trade up my Hitachi 160GB 5400RPM for one of these bad boys. :rockout:

but is this drive fast?
i am asking because i was looking for a nice 2.5 s-ata drive for my laptop but i don't know wich one is fast and not tooo hot.
In former days i was able to change my ide 2.5" drive by removing 4 screws and just place a fast 7200rpm one inside but now a days there are several connectors on these laptops.
I only know that my laptop is equiped with an 2.5" s-ata 80GB HD thats all.
Is there sata 2 for 2.5" ??

Lol, they have had 250GB for a little while now, so 320GB still isnt *that* much closer to 1TB :p.

But, as you might have implied, at least its improving :D.

Any drive listed as SATA 3.0Gb/s is "SATA 2".
SATA 1 is 1.5Gb/s

LoL, and my battery doesn't last long enough with my 5400 rpm drive.

I'd consider it if I didn't get a 160 GB 5400 4 months ago (it was a good deal).

Even though i only got an 80GB sata Hdd - im holding out until they release a relatively cheap + decent capacity SSD drive. docking & transfering most of my data to a external HDD is like a way of like for me lol
