Further strengthening its position in the mobile computing market, Seagate
Technology is expanding its line of notebook hard disc drives with the
industry’s highest capacity and performance for applications ranging from
high-performance mobile workstations to mainstream laptop computers. Combining a
wide range of spin speeds and capacities up to 120GB, the 2.5-inch Momentus
family delivers the ruggedness, power-thrifty design and whisper-quiet operation
that are redefining mobile computing.

Highlighting Seagate’s notebook product line are 7,200- and 5,400-rpm models
that provide the highest capacities available – 100GB and 120GB, respectively –
to help meet growing demand among mobile users for notebook computers with
greater performance and storage capacity.

"People on-the-go need notebook computers that deliver desktop PC performance
yet can withstand the rigors of travel and extend battery life," said Jeff
Loebbaka, Seagate vice president of Global Marketing. "Others are willing to
settle for lower performance and capacity in exchange for lower cost. Seagate is
meeting all these needs with a family of Momentus drives that combine the widest
range of spin speeds and capacities with the highest levels of reliability and
power efficiency."

"As notebook PCs displace desktop PCs in the workplace, end users increasingly
will demand desktop PC capabilities in notebooks," said John Buttress, IDC’s
research manager for hard drives. "Currently, the market for 7,200-rpm notebook
drives is a niche market, but it is growing, and the market for 5,400-rpm drives
already is growing rapidly. The market opportunities for these high-performance
drives in notebook PCs also include requirements for higher capacities.
Companies like Seagate that combine these capabilities with lower acoustic and
power consumption levels will be well positioned in these growing segments to
gain market share in the future."

Not just for notebooks, Momentus features a tough design that also makes the
drives ideal for CE devices, printers, copiers, non-mission critical blade
servers, external storage arrays and other environments where systems are
jostled or subject to high levels of vibration. Momentus drives can withstand up
to 900 Gs of non-operating shock and 250 Gs of operating shock to safeguard
drive data. Momentus hard drives are also highly power efficient, allowing
notebook users to work longer between battery recharges, and are virtually
inaudible to users thanks to Seagate SoftSonic fluid-dynamic bearing motors.
