An Indian Civilizational Perspective

1 Terabyte Laptop coming to a Store near you..

The world of computing and storage is moving at an unprecendented pace! Now, very soon a laptop with 1 Terabyte of storage will be coming to a store near you! Soon the old laptops and their capacities will look puny!

Maybe.. maybe ONLY then.. would Vista start to run without its hiccups?!! Why cant the MSFT guys send their engineers to the same school as Apple’s and get a Diploma if not a PhD? It would save all of us a bunch of headaches!

Asus, the Taiwanese computer maker, will come out with a notebook that sports two 500GB hard drives from Hitachi Global Storage Technologies. Combined, this will give a fully configured Asus M70 notebook a terabyte of storage.

Put another way, the notebook will be capable of storing 1,000 hours of video, or more than 350 feature length movies, or 250,000 four-minute songs. That will probably tide you over for even the worst airport layovers. A terabyte also holds about the same amount of data that could be stored on the paper from 50,000 trees.

Asus will also release notebooks with a single 500GB drive.

Hitachi’s Travelstar 5K500 drive, coming in February, is the highest-capacity 2.5-inch drive to date, according to Hitachi. The drive, like most cutting-edge hard drives being made these days, features perpendicular recording, which allows more data per square inch than conventional drives.
