post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I was just wondering if anyone would happen to know when the new 500GB Laptop Hard Drives from Toshiba or Hitachi are coming out?

He asked when the 500gb ones were coming out, not the biggest available now...

I don't have an answer though.

Well for Samsung drives.

Hitachi

Shipping around February so should be out in March, I would assume.

If they are really going to be $350+ I am just going to go with the 320GB Hard Drive then because thats an affordable price.

Just imagine what a 500 gig hard drive is going to do to your battery time. I have a 500 gig external hard drive to back up the things on my notebook.
