Toshiba's smallest, fastest hard drive is now bigger

Toshiba

Today, Toshiba announced a 1.8-inch hard drive that combines high capacity with high performance. The drive (model MK617GSG) gives you 160GB of storage spinning at 5400rpm. Other 160GB 1.8-inch drives have been chugging along at 4200rpm, until now. Expect to see this drive--and the single platter 80GB version of it--in mininotebooks in August. No details yet on how much of a discount these drives will offer over similarly sized solid-state drives.
