people care about weight as well. Tis one of the reasons why ultrabook/sleekbook/chromebook is working, its because people want a light laptop/netbook to do their work.

That is a standard sized drive actually. 2.5" drives have a varying thickness from 5mm to 15mm.

9.5mm became the standard thickness of a 2.5" hard drive for use in laptops and small form factor computers. 1tb laptop drives have been thicker than that as more platters were needed, typically 12.5mm. We now have 2Tb 2.5" drives in the "standard" 9.5mm thickness thanks to improvements in areal densities of disk platters.
