On 14th December 2009, Seagate Technology had announced the Momentus Thin laptop hard drive, which is the world’s thinnest 2.5-inch hard disk drive that created for slim computing designs. It is best fit for most of the high-end netbooks; backup devices; slim consumer electronic devices; ultra-portable laptops; entry-level and mainstream laptops PCs.

Momentus Thin is about 7mm in height, which is 25 percent thin than traditional 9.5mm 2.5-inch laptop hard drive. It is great space saving, easy to carry from place to place and also less expensive.

The Momentus Thin drive features two capacity points, which are 160GB and 250GB with a 5400RPM spin speed, an 8MB on-board cache and a Serial ATA 3GB per second interface. The drive has the self-encryption, FIPS 140-2 certification and free-fall sensors as the current Seagate Momentus drives had.

The advantage of this slimline product from Seagate gives Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) and system integrators significantly lower cost-per-gigabytes storage to continue on reducing the thickness and weight of their notebook platforms. So this enables computer makers to offer systems that reach a broader market in this fast-growing technology age.

Seagate is scheduled to ship to their OEM and integrator partner in January 2010. Additionally, Seagate was the top hard-disk drive maker in the third quarter but now is ranked third in the 2.5-inch market behind the leader Western Digital and Toshiba, according to the news from International Data Corporation (IDC).
