    Seagate Technology, the world's number one hard drive maker, today surged to new levels of areal density and storage capacity leadership with the introduction of the world's first desktop hard drive to hit the 750GB capacity mark. The monster drive is part of the new Barracuda 7200.10 family built on perpendicular recording technology to meet the growing storage capacity, performance and reliability requirements of desktop computers and low-end servers. To meet the growing storage capacity requirements of both PCs and servers, the Barracuda 7200.10 family provides 200GB to 750GB of capacity on the strength of industry-leading data density of 130 Gigabits per square inch (up to 188 Gigabytes per disc). Barracuda 7200.10 also features cache sizes from 8MB to 16MB and 1.5Gb/s and 3.0Gb/s Serial ATA (SATA) data transfer rates with Native Command Queuing. Backed by Seagate's industry-leading 5-year warranty, the 7200-rpm Barracuda 7200.10 family is ideal for system builders requiring the industry's leading combination of hard drive capacity, performance and reliability for single-user systems. The new Barracuda 7200.10 family is now shipping to the worldwide distribution channel.

    Yep, and with a low low price of $550 you can pick one of these bad boys up...or you can just go get 2 400GB drives for $200 a piece and save yourself $150.
