Now I didn’t measure the physical hard drive in the Samsung Q1, but it sure looked like a 2.5-inch drive to me. Maybe there’s hope for future UMPCs to up the 40 GB of storage to 200 GB or more based on the perpendicular recording technology […]

Perpendicular_drive_toshiba Now I didn’t measure the physical hard drive in the Samsung Q1, but it sure looked like a 2.5-inch drive to me. Maybe there’s hope for future UMPCs to up the 40 GB of storage to 200 GB or more based on the perpendicular recording technology that’s been discussed for the past year or so. Toshiba has their own pint-sized drive, the MK2035GSS that packs the two platters with 200 GB of capacity. The 4200 RPM drive measures in at only 9.5 mm thin; I’d be curious to see who the first UMPC OEM tries to fit one into a handheld. Perhaps I should crack Sammy’s case open again? ;)

  1. Hi, The Samsung as a 40gb 4200rpm 1.8″ hard drive, very mobile and cutting edge, in my opinion one of the best hd’s out there.

  2. Thanks Dean, you just saved me the trouble of opening up “Sammy” to the harsh summer elements again.

  3. No way it’s a 2.5″, anything small and mobile recently is 1.8″, including the Sony U, Motion LS800, Fujitsu P1510D, and even some larger computers (like the Motion LE1600).
