Fujitsu fêtes first 7200rpm SATA II notebook drive

Ready for 'Santa Rosa'

Fujitsu has introduced what it claims is the World's first 2.5in, 7,200rpm 3Gbps SATA hard drive, a notebook-oriented unit with a raw storage capacity of 160GB.

The MHW2160BJ won't be available for laptop manufacturers to build into machines until the end of May - not coincidentally the same month in which Intel is expected to launch the next major incarnation of its Centrino notebook platform, codenamed 'Santa Rosa'.

Fujitsu also touted the drive's low power consumption: no more than 2.3W, even when data is being read or written. The MHW2160BJ is quiet too, its manufacturer claimed.
