Seagate has secretly updated its 7200.9 Barracuda line of desktop drives. According to information from DailyTech the 40GB, 80GB, 120GB, and 160GB models in the 7200.9 desktop hard drive line will feature a smaller physical design among a few other changes. The first change will be to the height, or thickness of the drive from 26mm to 20mm which is said to allow better air flow and lower acoustics. The drives will also have the PCMA flipped over to reduce the risk of damage from handling as well as a reduction in EMI or electromagnetic interference. The drives will also have a reduction in weight from 500g to 366g. Seagate hasn't officially commented the story, but the refreshed drives with updated specs are beginning to ship and will hit the stores soon.
