Western Digital Launches World-First 2TB Hard Drive

Quote:
Engadget is reporting that brand-new 2TB Western Digital hard drives are showing up in Australian online stores. The drives are Western Digital's first foray past single-terabyte varieties, and are sure to come as a punishing blow to former capacity leader Seagate and its 1.5TB drives which don't seem to be working quite right as of late.....

Obsolete

Obsolete or at least it will be in the next year. SSD's are already up to 1TB. Article here. Can't believe that already the prices are starting to drop for these and boy they are fast, forget about the WD VelociRaptor already comparable size and price

So far, the typical SSD has been smaller in capacity, such as the 120GB SSD launched by SanDisk on Friday. That SSD costs around £165.

I want one.

That's good to see they have come along so far so quickly, i can't beleive they are at 1TB already, I want one too!! The next step will be to incorporate the system RAM into the same device and then we can say goodbye to the page file and have even lower latency.

I remember when my mate got his first computer, it was a Commodore Amiga 1200 and he had a 100MB hard drive which was considered pretty good back then around 1994 I think.

for mr. grim, try a sinclair zx80 with no hd but a whopping 2K...yeah, 2K of ram. an add on pack of 16mb cost more than the original unit. circa about 1980/1981. ran in basic but if you learned machine code, you could do an amazing amout of work with 2K.
