Apart from the battery life..I rather keep the 15K spinning drives in my desktop rather than inside the laptop..
I can imagine someone accidentally putting pressure on the top and the disc shattering at those speeds
also a potential competitor to the velociraptor?
Most likely from the company that makes the VelociRaptor.
..What the ****
Wouldn't it be as noisy as hell spinning at 15k?
As soon as you could hear that spinning up, you could see the battery meter of your laptop draining
Pricing would have to be well below SSD prices to warrant consideration in my notebook.
Would be madness to put this in a notebook, I am not well versed in storage in servers but would the performance gains really make a difference over arrays of hundreds of drives? Otherwise I am guessing the 2.5" form factor allows greater storage density as you can use more drives.
Its more use for a desktop PC, or a "desktop replacement" rather than a laptop. Think about the heat generated in a laptop too, mine gets hot enough and thats on a 5400rpm drive :/
Sooo can I buy your laptop
Greater storage density, lower power draw (assuming same number of drives) and probably lesser heat vs a 3.5" HDD.
This probably uses 3 300GB platters.
If it's using 3 x 300GB platters, it's going to be 12-15mm thick, rather than the standard 9. Couple that with the rather INSANE heat, and the incredible fragility of laptop drives, and this might be a drive best suited for enterprise usage. Where's it's not going to move. And be in datacenters.
be cheaper id think too
Aww, I'm still saving for an SSD
Ie. Western Digital.
Well that goes to be one hot mother....
Thank god and about time, I need these in the enterprise sector!
900GB and being able to fit 4 of these in the space of every 3.5 inch drive finally breaks the capacity density stand-off between the form factors.
The biggest 15k drive i can get currently is only 600GB in 3.5 factor too!
Odd there has been no whispers around the channel or enterprise news about this until now...
It's not that I don't know - heck, I run 2 WD drives in my PC. It's just a reply to the post above mine. (Which is quoted below.)
