Seagate breaks through the 1TB-per-platter barrier for laptop drives – Computerworld

Seagate has broken through the 1TB per platter barrier for 2.5-in., 7mm thick (laptop) hard disk drives (HDD).

The breakthrough, announced today, is significant in that Seagate can now produce HDDs for ultrathin laptops, which require a 7mm-high drive form factor or less.

The new drive is 25% lighter than the previous generation of Seagate mobile hard drives, weighing in at 3.17 oz.
