5400RPM SATA drive for ultra-portables


Recently, Toshiba launched a record breaking 1.8-inch 240GB drive and now it has outdone itself by unveiling a 250GB MKxx29GSG series unit.

The previously announced 240GB drive was stuck with the obsolescent PATA interface, whereas the new drive is a SATA unit and as it spins at 5400RPM, impressive performance is to be expected.

The 8mm thick featherweight sounds like a great choice for ultra-portable notebooks, which are currently limited to small and slow 1.8-inch drives or expensive SSDs. The new drive should go into production in November, and you can expect it in actual products by the end of the year.
