I can remember buying a 1.2 GB drive and thinking that I would never run out of space. The same thing crossed my mind when I received my first 20GB notebook drive. It is funny how things change so quickly. We have 2TB drives for the desktop and now, thanks to Western Digital we have a 1TB drive for your notebook.
But all is not pizza and beer for WD, it seems that they are only getting half the kudos. While they are the first to hit 1TB with traditional magnetic storage they missed the 1TB 2.5 Inch crown by losing out to pureSilicon when they released their 1TG 2.5 Inch SSD.
Still this does open the gates for affordable large capacity storage for notebooks and even netbooks. Plus the added bonus of fitting right in many SFF systems and even a few high end HD-Cameras like the Red One.
