Subject: Seagate Announces 60GB Per Platter

Those of you who find todays hard drive storage space just isn't enough to keep your entire collection of MP3s, DivX, and pr0n online at the same time, take note. Seagate has announced that they can now cram 60 gigabytes on a single platter, meaning more space for you as todays drives top out at about 40 gigabytes per platter. Seagate's 120GB Barracuda ATA V drives will be the first to start sporting this technology (down to 2 platters in the drive) as well as make an entrance into Serial ATA. No official date is noted as to when these drives may start showing up in retail supplies, but I can't imagine it'll be long.
