    Fujitsu Limited today announced the new MHW2 BH series of hard disk drives (HDDs) for mobile PCs, its first 2.5" HDD offerings to incorporate advanced perpendicular magnetic recording (PMR) technology for enhanced storage capacity. Two new models, the 160GB MHW2160BH (which boasts the industry's highest storage capacity for a 5,400 rpm HDD), and the 80GB MHW2080BH, will go on sale worldwide from October 2006. In addition to achieving 160GB of storage capacity through PMR technology, the new MHW2 BH series also features the industry's highest level of shock resistance and energy efficiency. Moreover, new HDDs are the RoHS compliant. In addition to the MHW2 BH series, Fujitsu will simultaneously introduce the MHW2 AT series aimed at the consumer electronics market with the best-in-class acoustic noise level of 1.5 bels when idle. The series also incorporate traditional longitudinal recording technology.

    Looking at a picture of a traditional HDD head begs the question "how is this perpendicular?" - unless it's "virtually" perpendicular:rolleyes: , or the head rotates as it moves.
