First 7200rpm 320GB notebook drive from Dell

Seagate’s drive is first to Dell’s shelves

In the world of press announcements, Seagate can be a tortoise at times.  And while flashy “first” press releases can garner attention for other disk drive vendors, it’s when the drives are in the hands of customers that really matters.

According to Engadget, Seagate has crossed the finish line first with 320GB 7200 rpm notebook drives from Dell.  The Momentus 7200.3 is a rockin’ drive, too – check it out.

Here’s a slow-motion video of the Momentus 7200 zero-G sensor in action.

Who’s using 7200 rpm in their notebook?  Is it worth the extra $46?

  1. cool sloooooooowwwwwww-mooooowwwwwwww

  2. In Canada, I would go with a 7200 rpm drive. However, here in Japan, I can’t let my notebooks run that hot. The Asian humidity is a killer for any portable device, and a high-speed drive would send the temperature of these machines into the red. For that reason alone, I stick with the 5400’s.

    Perhaps if I move back to Canada or somewhere a little more temperate, I’ll consider the upgrade to 72’s 🙂
