Other features include 9GB DDR3 memory, a 1TB hard drive, a 1GB Radeon HD 5450 graphics, an HDMI port, a 16X DVD+/-RW LightScribe, Gigabit Ethernet, a 15-in-1 card reader, a multimedia keyboard and mouse, and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
Samsung is now shipping the Spinpoint MT2, a 2.5-inch 1TB internal hard drive for use with mobile applications and set top boxes (DVRs, Digital TVs etc.), where you want your drives to run quiet and cool. The drive only runs at 5400 rpm, which is typical for such high-capacity drives. It uses Samsung’s proprietary SilentSeek and NoiseGuard technologies.
This drive should be fast enough for an HD digital video recorder and is likely to be much quieter than a 3.5″ disk. No word yet on price, but it should start making the rounds soon.
