Seagate Technology has announced that its Samsung HDD division has started shipping the new 2.5-inch Spinpoint M9T HDD. Measuring in at 9.5mm, the Spinpoint M9T is the world’s thinnest 2TB hard drive. The HDD can also be installed in laptops, owing to its 2.5-inch size. Along with the 2TB HDD, a 1.5TB variant is also available. Thanks to the thinner HDD, laptop OEMs will undoubtedly be able to make slimmer notebooks and ultrabooks.
“The M9T combines the highest areal density shipping in a single storage device with an innovative design that fits into mainstream notebook applications. While other 2TB are solutions on the market are 15 mm thick, the vast majority of mobile devices are designed to use a 9.5 mm drive; with the M9T, those devices can now have 2TB of storage, enabling a richer computing experience,” said Dave Frankovich, Senior product line Manager, Samsung HDD.
