The 7mm thick WD Scorpio Blue


In order to cash in on with the Ultrabook deals and probably make them a bit cheaper, Western Digital has now announced a new 2.5-inch Scorpio Blue drive that promises to be just the right HDD for those that aren't too keen on pricey SSDs.

Unlike standard 9.5mm thick 2.5-inch HDDs, WD managed to shave off a couple of milimeters and keep the new Scorpio Blue at Ultrabook 7mm standard. It also promises "best-in-class" 400G shock tolerance, has lower power consumption thanks to advance power management features and algorithms, features WD's WhisperDrive technology for quiet performance and WD's SecurePark which parks recording heads for additional reliability.

The new WD Scorpio Blue is a single-platter HDD and will be available in 320 and 500GB capacities and has already started shipping to various distibutors and resellers with a MSRP set at US $99.99 for the 500GB model and US $79.99 for the 320GB one. It is covered by a two-year warranty.
