Fujitsu announced that it will begin shipping monstrous 250 GB and 300 GB notebook hard drives in the first quarter of 2007. Fujitsu promises the new 2.5" flagship drive will offer about three times the capacity of any mainstream notebook today, almost twice of the space of Seagate's high-end 160 GB drive and 50% more than the currently largest notebook hard drives (200 GB). The company claims that this second generation PMR drive uses less power(1.6 watt) than any other PMR notebook drive available today, because it spins at 4200 rpm. The "MHX2300BT" also features Native Command Queuing and both SATA 2.5 and ATA-8 interfaces.

FAR better and MUCH MORE INTERESTING would be a hybrid 2.5" that would contain a separate flash partition. Why a separate partition? = For the pagefile.sys.

Unlike desktops, laptops have a limited memory upgrade path. One slot full, or, chipset limit reached. A simple 512MB or 1GB pagefile partition would provide virtual memory significantly improving performance.

On a desktop... you'd just stick in another DDR(2) module. On a laptop, you would be able to swap out the HDD and instantly gain faster bigger HDD, plus more system ram (virtual).
