As we touched on in the intro, Seagate has launched the Laptop SSHD and Laptop Thin SSHD in two capacities. The Laptop Thin SSHD coming in the 500GB capacity closely followed by the Laptop SSHD at 1TB. Each of these drives use a 5400RPM spindle speed and come with a very nice 64MB cache and the SATA 6Gb/s interface.

 

The sustained data rate on each of these models on paper, exceed Ultrabook revision 2 specifications and sits at 100MB/s and we find the average latency at 5.6ms.

 

Power consumption, another big player in getting your notebook blessed by Intel and thus upgraded to Ultrabook status, shows the Laptop Thin SSHD averaging 2.5W during seek and 0.9W idle and the Laptop SSHD at 2.7W seek and 1.1W idle.

 

Newegg currently has the ST500LM000 (Laptop Thin 500GB SSHD) listed and in stock at $99.99. The larger 1TB ST1000LM014 (Laptop 1TB SSHD) is currently on sale for a very competitive $119.99.

 

Each of these units come as a bare drive, and are covered under Seagate's three year warranty.
