Don’t we need something more than 16GB of on-flash storage in our tablets? Well then you guys are not thinking ahead. Seagate is entering the market with its latest 5mm laptop ultrathin hard drive. It has a storage capacity of 500 GB which looks ideal for ultrabooks and tablets. Its available in both 320GB and 500GB. As the name indicates it’s the conventional hard drive and not the solid state drive. Traditional HDD offers a lot more storage capacity for price value than the SSDs which not only have little capacity but are also higher in price.
WD has announced today that they are shipping the world’s first ultra-slim 2.5-inch, 5 mm hard drives and solid state hybrid drives (SSHD). These new drives are designed for slim devices like tablets where there is not much space available. With their 500 GB capacity these drives are aimed to increase storage capacity while enabling them to fit in smaller device slots.
