After a long I get to talk something about Western Digital. The company has started shipping its Scorpio Blue hard drive. The newer version of WD hard drives will be just 7mm thick to be installed in Ultrabooks. But this stack of Scorpio Blue hard drives will be available as the aftermarket product.
Western Digital has squeezed the 500 gigabytes onto a single platter the reason why it is very slim. Also, the noise of machinery has also been brought down. The storage capacity will be 320GB and 500GB, costing $80 and $100 respectively.
The storage devices will be able to bear 400Gs of shock. But, as WWE states, Don’t Try This At Home.
Not only the Ultrabook will benefit from Scorpio Blue’s smartness, some ultraportable laptops in the market, alike Lenovo x130e, that only takes 7mm hard drives will also gain advantage from WD’s new product.
As mentioned in the very first line above, company starts shipping today.
