Spinpoint M7 HDD range that serves to up the range's maximum capacity
from 500GB to 650GB.

Samsung Spinpoint M7 is being targeted specifically at high-end mobile
gaming rigs needing increased storage capacity along with enhanced shock
resistance – and, to that end, the new 640GB Spinpoint M7 offers
400G shock resistance during operation and 900G whilst powered down.

With the addition of the new internal drive to the M7 series, our
customers will get the best viable combination of density, performance
and reliability that is essential for high-end notebooks and mobile

Samsung Electronics. Samsung maximizes the density level of its
platters to enhance the reliability and stability of its internal hard
