Two external versions already listed
Seagate is about to launch its first 2.5-inch 1TB drive and several
British retailers are already listing two Seagate external drives based
on the new disk.
The Seagate Portable and Seagate FreeAgent Go cost just over €160, but
they are still not available, and at this point it's unclear when
Seagate plans to ship them.
Mindy you, we're not talking about a particularly fast drive, as it's a
5400rpm unit with 8MB of cache. Seagate's Momentus and Constellation
series drive run at 7200rpm and feature 16MB or 32MB of cache.
However, at this point we're not sure if the new 1TB drive is a 9.5mm
design, which would make it the first practical 1TB unit for notebooks
on the market.
