Posted in Western Digital by Reuben Drake on July 20th, 2011

Need a high capacity hard drive? Well, lucky you, Western Digital has shipped its first 1TB notebook drive thin enough to fit most portable notebooks. The upgraded Scorpio Blue measures 9.5mm tall and is thin enough that a MacBook Pro or most other thinner notebooks can take it with ease.

They achieved the slimness through fitting 500GB per platter and cutting out the third platter. You can buy the drive for $139 at resellers. We aren’t sure when it will come from PC builders.

Other features include a 5.1 megapixel camera, digital TV tuner and an e-wallet function. It will run on Android 2.2 and we aren’t holding our breath waiting for this one in the US. So, how did they get it so thin?

New slim notebooks to arrive soon, looking for MacBook Air

Posted in Notebooks by Conner Flynn on February 14th, 2011

Apple’s MacBook Air is still enjoying being the slimmest notebook around, since the Dell Adamo has been axed. Soon it will have some competition though since Acer, Asus and Lenovo are all planning to launch new ultra-thin notebooks in the second quarter of 2011 and they will feature components that are more competitive than Apple’s MacBook Air.

That means that they can sell them at a lower price. Acer will release its new Timeline notebooks, Asus will has its U-series slim models and Lenovo is offering new ultra-thin models of its IdeaPad. The prices on these notebooks should be below $1,000.
