The new drive however will utilize fewer platters and less heads meaning the platters will hold more data than the ones in the current 750GB drive. This move leaves the other big hard drive manufacturers in the dust as no one else has matched the 750 GB HDD from Seagate to date.This also means that around the same time we can likely expect to see 2TB external drives from Seagate or more likely Maxtor who is owned by Seagate. Maxtor currently sells a 1.5 TB external hard drive that uses two of the Seagate 750 GB drives inside. Story and image via DailyTech.
