Samsung 500Gb 2.5 inch hard drive

March 10, 2008 2 comments

Some things,  mainly the ones we don’t have to physically handle, benefit from being made smaller. The Samsung Spinpoint M6 is a 500Gb 5400rpm hard drive in a 9.5mm high 2.5 inch case.

Not sure when these are hitting the UK or how they will be priced (am I being cynical thinking it won’t be £150?)
