Samsung M6, MP2 notebook hard drives now shipping: Largest capacity for a notebook hdd


Among other items, Samsung today introduced the Spinpoint M series of notebook hard drives. You’ll care because they represent, right now, the largest capacity 2.5-inch drives out there, with sizes ranging from 250GB to 500GB. The drives run at 5,400 RPM, which, while a little slow by desktop standards, is about what’d you expect from a laptop hard drive.

Or, if you’re more concerned with speed than size, there’s also the Spinpoint MP2 series, which top out at 250GB but run at 7,200 RPM.

As for price, look for the M6 for $299, while the MP2 is $199.
