and the latest to grab one from is Toshiba who have just recently
announced their 2.5-inch MKxx56GSY 7200rpm laptop HDD that features a
top-end half-terabyte storage capacity.

for an environment friendly device that eliminates the use of certain
toxic and hazardous chemicals.

More to it, the new Toshiba MKxx56GSY is not just a large hard drive
but one with decent shock resistance ratings -- 325 G operating shock
resistance and 900G non-operating shock resistance.
Toshiba's MKxx56GSY hard drive will begin mass production in Q4 2009,
but we're still waiting to be updated on a price tag.
