WD Launches Ultrabook Hard Drive
Western Digital this week announced the shipment of a new hard drive meant to work with Ultrabook computers. The WD Scorpio Blue is available in 500 GB and 320 GB denominations, retailing for $99.99 and $79.99, respectively.
"Consumers want thin and light personal computers, but the limited storage capacity of SSD-based notebooks forces them to pick and choose what files to bring from their library," Matt Rutledge, vice president and general manager for WD client storage products, said as part of the announcement.
"With the release of the new WD Scorpio Blue 7 mm mobile hard drives, WD is able to offer capacity, reliability and data-protection features combined with excellent power management all in a slim form factor perfect for thin and light notebooks."
