I have nothing but good things to say about my MacBook.
To date, it’s been tough, resilient, scrappy, good at locating wireless networks and has yet to let me down.
I just wish the hard drive was bigger.
On Monday, Toshiba announced a new 2.5″, 320 gigabyte SATA notebook hard drive. According to the guys over at Engadget, the MK3252GSX features a pair of 160 gigabyte platters which spin at 5,600 rpm with an eight megabyte buffer.
Albeit Fujitsu is currently offering a 300 gigabyte model, Toshiba’s offers a faster drive speed (5,600 rpm as opposed to 4,200 rpm and a lower size profile as well as the additional 20 gigabytes).
The MK3252GSX is expected to begin shipping in November when Toshiba puts them into mass production.
Price and availability details have yet to be announced.
Stay tuned to the PowerPage for further details as they become available and if you have any thoughts on this, let us know in the comments and forums.
