The Seagate drive uses a SATA 3.0 Gbit/second interface. The fast 7200 RPM rotational speed makes for serious performance. Commonly when a notebook drive has a high storage capacity you have to live with 5400 RPM or slower speeds making data access slower.
"Laptop users want every bit of capacity, performance and durability that desktop PCs deliver," said Michael Wingert, Seagate executive vice president and general manager, Personal Computer Business. "The new Momentus 7200.3 hard drive exemplifies Seagate's focus on delivering leading storage technologies that make it easier to move, use and protect digital information in the home, in the office and on-the-go."
