Although Fujitsu may be looking to solid-state storage (SSD) to replace 1.8" hard disc drives (HDDs), the market for fast 2.5" HDDs is still alive and well. Just last month, Fujitsu and Seagate announced 160GB 2.5" hard drives spinning at 7200RPM. Samsung has today upped the ante with a 2.5" enterprise 7200RPM HDD that boasts a capacity of up to 200GB.

 

The new SpinPoint MP1 Series utilizes perpendicular recording to achieve a density of 100GB per platter. The MP1 Series will be available in capacities of 80GB, 120GB, 160GB and 200GB and will support cache sizes of 8MB or 16MB.
