The Toshiba MK1617GSG drive
While the future for mobile hard drives looks certain to be Flash memory based SSDs, there is still some life in the traditional platter based drives for a while yet with Toshiba announcing a new line-up of 1.8-inch hard disk drives adopting a serial ATA interface. The new releases include the industry's first drive of this type with a capacity of 160 gigabytes. The new 160GB drive, MK1617GSG, and an 80GB drive, MK8017GSG, boost interface speeds to 1.5Gbps and offer rotation speeds of 5,400 rpm, faster than the current generation of Toshiba 1.8-inch HDDs.
