Fujitsu Limited today announced the development of the new MHW2 BJ series of 7,200 rpm 2.5″ hard disk drives with a serial ATA 3.0 Gb/s interface.

  1. Regular Reader you are so right. I have the original MBP 1.83, and I so wish it had a much larger hd.(currently 80gb)

    I have to run an external drive for all my movies and iTunes content. It’s a pain. Even I would have a pretty hard time filling this new one up. I wish there was a way to upgrade the existing hd w/o voiding the warranty.

    This is great news though.

  2. makeminea: I recently upgraded my MBP 1.83 to a 120GB drive, installed creative suite and upon installing Final Cut Studio, decided to opt for installing all the “extras” onto an external drive for the same reason.

    Want a 120GB 2.5″ drive?

  3. Want more,
    I would think anyone would be impressed if they simple out and say they’ve developed a 1TB 2.5″. They’d be equally impressed if Intel suddenly, out of the blue, released a Quad 25GHz processor upgrade for your macs.

    I don’t see that being to likely right now though.

  4. Reality: “anyone would be impressed if … Intel suddenly, out of the blue, released a Quad 25GHz processor upgrade for your macs.”

    Is it a direct plug and play upgrade for my new Mac Pro? ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” /> As a 3D animator, I simply cannot get enough CPU power!
