Speed and capacity isn't a combination that often goes hand-in-hand with notebooks, but it can be with Western Digital's Scorpio 750GB hard drive. This 2.5-inch SATA drive spins at 7200RPM and is one of the fastest notebook drives around, and it's shipping now, WD says.
"Our most demanding customers have come to expect 'no compromises' from all of our Black series products," explains Matt Rutledge , vice president of product marketing for WD. "The new WD Scorpio Black drive does not disappoint, providing users of portable devices the necessary speed, significant storage and efficient power management needed to enjoy their favorite HD content, high resolution images, powerful office applications or gaming at home, in the office or on the road."
The drive also comes equipped with 16MB of cache and uses Western Digital's Advanced Format technology. It carries an MSRP of $150.
