Often one of the thickest components inside a notebook computer is the hard drive. The hard drive can at times determine how thin a notebook can be designed. Seagate has unveiled what it is claiming to be the world's thinnest HDD specifically designed for laptops.

The drive is only 7mm thick making it 2.5mm thinner than typical laptop drives. The thin drive is aimed directly at the netbook market where cost is a factor. The Momentus Thin drive has performance close to that of traditional 2.5-inch drives according to Seagate and will be offered in 250GB and 160GB capacities with SATA interface and an 8MB cache.

Seagate plans to ship the drive in January 2010 to its retail partners. The drive will spin at 5,400 rpm and should offer good performance. It's unclear at this point, what the drive will be priced at and if the drive will be offered in retail for upgrades.
