Seagate launches ultra-thin hard disk drive

Seagate's latest foray into the storage disk market begins with the ultra-thin 5mm hard disk drive. Marketed as the thinnest hard disk drive (HDD) at 5mm, the Seagate Laptop Ultra-thin HDD is expected to be intregrated into PCs of OEM partners, including Dell and Lenovo.

So, why develop an HDD as thin mm? Seagate says that the HDD will be perfect for lightweight mobile computing devices and tablets, which are, of course, a trend today. Measuring 2.5-inches, and 5mm thin, the disk delivers up to 500GB of capacity, capable of storing  over 100,000 photos, 125,000 songs or 62 hours of high-definition video.

It also incorporates a 6Gb/s SATA interface for fast data transfer rates and comes with the industry standard SATA connection for easy integration into existing laptops supported by both hard drive and SSD storage. It will retail for $89 and will be available soon.
