Available in 160GB, 200GB and 220GB flavors, these are the first drives of their size featuring low-insertion force (LIF) SATA connectors. With a 16MB cache Requiring just 0.35 watts at idle, they should be both snappy and battery-friendly. These drives should find themselves in manufacturer's hands sometime in February.
