Wow, usually 1 platter 2.5" drives are at 7mm and 2 platter drives at 9.5mm, 3 platter is 12.5mm and 4 platter is 14 to 15mm.
5mm is very thin.

SSHDs? From Seagate?

mSATA sure is nice too. I would much prefer a small SSD versus a larger capacity HDD in my ultrabook. Laptops are for portability, not mass central storage.

90 bux (OEM) for a new, uber-thin product like this and at that capacity point is hardly "2 arms, 1 leg & [a] spleen".

grow up!

$90 for 500GB in a new form factor? That's a darn good deal. Back when IDE was the standard for connecting hard drives and what not it was $100 for 30GB. That was only ~10 years ago.

Prolly a high school kid.

That's not a bad price at all. Heck, recently DESKTOP 3.5" HDDs at 500GB were up to $75...

This is great... it's nearly thin enough to put in a tablet!
